I'm considering doing the outback (I'm assuming its the same as the Subaru -Outback dropped out). I would say it would totally depend on your training, but seeing as the Dopey is your goal race I wouldn't risk injury.

I'm also running the Subaru and then Space Coast. I think I am running St Augustine instead of Savannah since I haven't run it yet and it starts right in front of my IL's house. I would stick to the half unless you regularly run multiple fulls in a season. Halfs are pretty easy to recover from and doing multiple races in one week can be great for training for Goofy or Dopey but if you are not used to fulls they will wipe you out mentally and physically.

Is the St Aug one the weekend before Thanksgiving? I have considered running something the weekend before so I could get 3 in one week. Subaru turns about 3 blocks from my parents house so we go visit for Thanksgiving. My Subaru shirt is my favorite race shirt! It is actually a lady's shirt that fits.

It usually is but this year it is a week earlier because of thanksgiving being so late.

We're running MCM in Oct, then Wine&Dine (same day as RnR Savannah). Running Dopey too. Considering the Space Coast full as that day we're scheduled for over 20 ...might as well get a medal for what would be a training run for Dopey anyway.

Are you running the MCM in Jax or DC? Just curious if it is the 1/2 at the beginning of the month or the full at the end of the month.

I have a hard time recovering that quickly from fulls so I try to limit to one or two a year. I have only trained for 2 in a season once and I didn't actually get to run one of them (NYC last year and Disney). You have some fun races on your agenda!

We should have a mini WISH meet at Space Coast, it looks like we will have quite a group heading down to earn the Columbia medal this year. I am hoping that my family has so much fun that they insist on me running it every year from now on so I can get the cool Big Bang Challenge medals.
