March 13 is upon us - the big registration day Colorado! Register for the Pikes Peak Marathon (PPM) or the Ascent, whichever form of self torture you prefer. For me, I've got my sight set on the marathon this year. With just one other marathon behind me (the fantastic Big Sur International Marathon) and an Ascent finish in 2010 that's barely hanging on within the three year qualifing time frame...it's now or never! Inspired by my friend, Katie Schwing, who completed the Triple Crown (including the PPM) last summer with a huge smile on her face and a well earned sense of accomplishment. Rightfully so, considering the Pikes Peak Marathon is labeled as the 2nd toughest marathon in the world and properly touted as America's Ultimate Challenge! I'm feeling up for the challenge (or at least I am psyching myself up to it)...are you?
Fingers crossed for all of you out there (including myself) for a successful entry!
