Your comments make sense. After running Chicago (which I really like) and calling it my favorite I switched it to Charlotte this fall. That is a really small race that I was not thrilled about running but I thought it was awesome. So I am with you, in that I am growing fond of smaller races. Detroit is another smallish race that I think is well done.
Next race? I have been giving it thought and it will be a fall race. I would love to hop back to it and find something early summer but after a rest and a few planned trips fall works best. That and I have a bike that I have watched sit in my bedroom for the past 4 months and I really want to spend some time riding it.
There are races I want to do for sure. Maybe Marine Corp because I have never been to DC? Maybe Kiawa? I am open to suggestions and have some time to make a decision. I would like to do two this fall so the timing has to be right on the ones I pick.
