I was dreaming of better places while running today. Contemplating how fascinating it would be to run all the way from here in Deadhorse to Tierra Del Fuego. I seriously doubt that anyone has actually run the entire way, but it gave me something to think about besides the nightly bad news that I was watching on TV while I ran.

I did some searching on the Marathon Maniacs website and Marathon Guide to see if there were any interesting races I could do in July. There isn't much in states where I have not run, but I did decide to do one in Utah that is predominantly downhill. Many people hate downhill but it is always very easy for me. So I am hoping I can make the 6 hour time limit. It seemed worth the chance. I also registered for my super favorite run, the Cordova King Salmon Marathon. I loved that last year and could enjoy making that one a yearly event. I'll drive to Whittier and take the ferry again. It was a wonderful weekend and a wonderful friendly event.
