Another item to add to the list

Okay, I have signed up to do the inaugural breast cancer marathon - 26.2 with Donna in Jacksonville, Florida. I am such a silly girl!!

And then I read on Coach Bill's blog that Texas has a new full/half marathon to offer up to the masses. It is the Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio and will take place November 16, 2008.



Too cool, but it means another decision I have to make!!

Do you know if this replaces the previous San Antonio Marathon, which was in November?

Never mind. I think I just answered my own question. Two marathons a week apart, though? Weird.

I found this site that says it does replace the current SAO marathon - link.

After looking at this year's course, it's definitely different from the year I did it. I'm still not sure if that'll be enough for me to sign up for the new "Rock & Roll" version. I had such a bad experience there in 2005 that it kinda ruined San Antonio for me for good.

There's nothing on the original San Antonio Marathon site to indicate it's been cancelled: http://www.samarathon.org/

I'm very confused.

I've always wanted to do a marathon in San Antonio, though.

The SAO marathon is still taking place in 2007 and the inaugral RNR SAO is scheduled for 2008. Does that help?

2007 will be the last year for the San Antonio Marathon as we know it.....a good destination with a ever changing marathon. Some years good, some years pretty bad.

Elite Racing takes it over for the 2008 version. They will put on a great event.

I'm also agree,2007 will be the last year for the San Antonio.
