That's exactly what I was thinking. The wife is a big long distance runner. She has run something like 12 marathons and even one 50 miler. I ran my first one 1.5 years ago. I liked it but it was just okay. We were thinking of doing a marathon the same weekend this event is (here in the Twin Cities) but a friend asked if I wanted to join his team so I went for this instead. She is going to do a marathon another weekend.
