13. I should be reading chapter 9 and 10 in this book, but instead, I'm doing this.

|May 1 - Cincinatti Course Profile|
|May 7 - Wisconsin Marathon|
6. Finally, I am signed up for the Inaugural Kalamazoo marathon as the fourth marathon of my double-double in early May. This will be state #16. The Kalamazoo marathon wanted to get people from every state for their first marathon, so they offered incentives to those who were the first to sign up from their state. As planned by Sweet Baboo, I was the first from New Mexico. So, the incentives: They are going to refund my entry fee, and give me a free pair of New Balance 890s, and all the fifty-staters get their own starting tent separate from the other marathoners. Not a bad way to finish out this series. I imagine new shoes will be nice to have; I imagine after 3 marathons my road shoes will be pretty flattened down.

4. In June, I'll be capturing state #17, Wyoming, the Bighorn Ultra. It's a 50 mile race because I was stupid enough to wait until the 50K was full. I figure that other than miles where I'm going sharply uphill, it's pretty doable. Maybe not enjoyable, but doable.
