Thanks for the links. Reading those reviews on RaceVine made me glad I did buy race insurance. I don't mind being out training hours if it gets cancelled-- but I would be very annoyed about costs, since I'm a tightwad-- emoticon

I think I might head out there this weekend and check out the tow path and see if the path at Greenbelt would be a good training path.

My biggest fear at this point is that I will only get time to run on weekends,until mid-August. I'm going to have to be creative with indoor-child assisted-training.

Thanks for responding on my thread on Road Runners. I did register for the fall Potomac River Run. I do most of my training in the arboretum in DC because that is the closest park-like place with good roads. I'm a SAHM with a toddler, so I don't often get to run mid week, but if I do, it's because my lovely MIL is watching the tot and so I run in Columbia on the Lake Elkhorn path. If you take it out to Savage Mills, it turns to dirt.

Are you familiar at all with the trail around Greenbelt Lake (Buddy Attick Park)? It's mostly dirt and a bit of gravel, and it's probably the most accessible non-paved path for me to run on. I'm wondering if it's comparable at all. I should take a drive down to the C&O canal and do some recon! :)

You asked the exact same question my dear wife asked: "Well, duh, why did you wear them." To I testily answered. "I don't know. Probably 'cause all the cool kids are wearing them."

Interesting -- this is a ten miler - all I know is 40000 is a lot of runners! Times that by spectators -- ouch!!
