State Chiropractic Regulations mandate that I have a Nutritional Counseling certification by the end of this year. I was originally told that because I'm a recent graduate, I wouldn't need it. Unfortunately, that was inaccurate, and I need to take a bunch of seminars by Dec. 31 or else. Because of the late notice I'm behind the eight ball a bit in making plans for seminars, and one of them only takes place...you guessed it...October 11th and 12th. Sorry Doug!
So it looks like I'm in the market for a different fall marathon or changing my focus to the Door County Fall 50 after Journeys in May. I'm heavily leaning to doing a marathon (or is that Ellie shoving me in that direction?) and this year it looks like the Milwaukee Marathon actually would work. Normally it's on the same date as Chicago, but this year it's a week earlier.
Talk about a difference though:
Chicago Marathon Registration Fee: $110
Milwaukee Marathon Registration Fee: $50
Chicago Participants: 45,000
Milwaukee Participants: 2,500
In a way I'm excited for a different adventure, but at the same time I'm already figuring out when I can return to Chicago!
