We've already paid for our trip to Vegas to run the Rock n Roll half marathon there on 12/4/11, so that rules out the obvious choice of White Rock in Dallas on 12/4.
My other criteria is that I want it to be in Texas becase
1- I don't want to have to travel too far before or after.
2- I'd like as much friend/family support as possible, even if that's just my mom (who has already said she must be there) and Jake (who I'm hoping will run... nudge, nudge... but I know would be there no matter what).
My options as I see them are:
- Rock n Roll San Antonio (roughly 5.5 hour drive)- November 13, 2011
- Houston (which is a lottery and roughly 4.5 hour drive)- January 15, 2012
- Galveston (roughly 5.5 hour drive)- February 5, 2012
Please give me your input (on which marathon, how to choose, training, anything you have)!
