The one other factor in the balance is that Mr Jools is American hence a trip stateside would make sense. I suspect he would steer me towards Chicago as that's where he studied.
Club session tonight was a rather gruelling 5 X 1.15 miles off what was notionally 2 minutes recovery although for the back markers like me it was more like 1.5. Still, 12 miles all in so a decent workout.
I think Comrades will be 2017 at the earliest for me, as still making progress with the marathon (at the risk of tempting fate), plus I am thinking that after what will have been 4 back-to-back marathon campaigns (autumn 2014, spring 2015, autumn 2015 and spring 2016) I will probably have either a lighter autumn 2016 or maybe do Chicago or New York for fun. I'm still really enjoying my running at the moment, but I think something a bit different might be nice.
