Word has it that people should be setting some goals now for 2008 or you risk missing one of your favorite races!

The Chilly Half Marathon on March 2 in Burlington is filling up fast. The price increases on December 1. Truly, price should not be the motivating factor as it is quite likely the race will be sold out for the walker positions before then.

The Big Sur 21 miler is sold out! There’s still room in some of the other distance events if you are pining for a walk in California in April.

And thanks to Laurel for noticing that the Ottawa Marathon for 2008 has walker divisions, bibs, and start corrals for both the half and the full marahtons. When Laurel isn’t offering us great tidbits of info on this blog, she’s cruising the marathon websites for walker updates!

With the winter weather most suddenly upon us, these goals become an effective psychological weapon against the cold, dark, ice, and snow.

And, never forget the power of good clothing and a pair of yaktrax!

Excuse, me while I go look for my fleece!
