Yep that is about it. I am not a member of TCRC but I am of the Broome County Triathlon Club.

Things are pretty quiet this time of year but if you are interested in group runs, or swims or bike rides you ladies should check it out - even if a triathlon isn't on your agenda, nothing beats group workouts.

I believe you just need to sign up and pay the annual fee. $20 or $25 maybe?

I believe it's slated for May.

P.S. I'm probably joining TCRC in Jan.

With 6-7 months to prepare I would say it is very doable. I do most all my runs with the run/walk method and it works very well for me. Don't think you have to run every inch of the 13.1 miles before you do one - you can of course - but many people walk some of it. We start right out with a run 9 minutes walk 1 right from the start and that keeps us stong and able to make it to the longer distances.

Here is the link to the triple cities runners club - on the left hand side is a calendar with all the races in the area. Keep an eye on that in the coming months and maybe the May HM will be posted sometime soon.

See you guys there!!

I heard about a Binghamton Half earlier this week and I am SO excited. I was planning on running a half in the spring, so this is just about as perfect as you can get. Count me in!!

VERY COOL NEWS!

Keep us up-to-date...! As it seems more and more of us on our local SparkTeam either are already doing races or working up to this! How GREAT it would be to have a SPARK PRESENCE at a local marathon!

Neat article - Thanks for sharing.

I have no desire to do a full marathon but I did do my first Half last Sunday.

FYI for anyone interested to "plan" for it - the plan is for there to be a half marathon right here in Binghamton in May sometime.

Cool! I personally have noticed lots of people running in my neighborhood and nearby neighborhoods. Not sure if I notice them more now b/c I run too or if it's a new trend.

What a pleasantly surprising trend!

Marathons can't keep pace with demand:

"It's becoming a familiar story: A marathon sells out in record time, leaving thousands of runners disappointed and race officials defensive.

Fact is, a sold-out marathon is nothing new. When the race is the Boston Marathon, however, and it fills up in eight hours, as it did Monday, people take particular notice."
