I will be heading back to the greater Atlanta area a week from today to take part in the ING Marathon and Half Marathon weekend. I have lowered my race distance for the weekend from the marathon to the half for a few reasons.
* First, I am nursing a very sore calf and shin and am trying to find out the cause of the problem. Whatever the cause may be, a little less running is assured to help it in some way.
* Second, I have a 100 mile race one week later and I think I can allow myself a little downtime here and there.
However, there will be no downtime from speeches and book signings as I am happy to announce I will be giving both a presentation and a book signing at The North Face in Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta on March 18th from 6 PM-8 PM.
This will be a great kick off to my weekend in Atlanta where I will be presenting at the ING Runner's Nation booth and also have my own booth to meet and greet as many runners as possible.
Hope to see you at one of these many events!
