I'm in Chicago and am not planning a visit to NZ this year. I have until sometime in 2013 when my friend in Auckland will decide if he'll stay on or return to the US? If I run a race, it'll probably be another go @ the Chicago Marathon in October...

W00t, I'm on the fence about the marathon this year. I like 1/2s a lot and don't feel like they are "work" Still, it would be a long summer without a goal?
