Comments Needed

I'm thinking about running The Great Wall of China Half Marathon. I've gone through the pros/cons in my head a thousand times. But I'm still uneasy on making a decision. Blogger World, what are your thoughts? I mean, how cool would be to run a half marathon on The Great Wall of China? Pretty freakin' cool!

Facts about the event:
The race is in May.
I even have someone crazy enough to run with me.
I have plenty of vacation time.
I've set money aside for random crazy trips, like this one.
I will be in shape to accomplish the race, because of the half marathon in April. Of course, I know China and OKC are a bit different. I'll be prepared, don't worry.

Sooo thoughts.....

Go! It is the experiance of a lifetime... I saw no list of cons! Of course, I am always for traveling especially to Asia! You will love it and you can bring me back a Beijing mug from Starbucks;)!

I agree you should do it. And if you have any compassion in your heart you can wait a year for this crazy woman to have her third child, and I'll go with you in 2011. Well I guess I'd have to clear that with the hubby first. A girl can dream, can't she?!

I think this is the opportunity of a lifetime. You should do it! Just be careful about the altitude...it's a bit tough to run when there's no air. ;o) Take loads of pictures.

Why not? You only live once and if you have someone to go with you, all the more reason to go NOW!!

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

If you don't already have a passport, you better hurry and get one.

We can keep an eye on your house if you need someone to.

I agree with the Lj's. I saw all pros and no cons.

Do it, sun shines!

Absolutely do it!

I always intended to race Puffing Billy. Now I'm 40 and living in another country and I really regret never having followed through.

Do it for nobody except you, and for no reason other than you will always regret never doing it.
