My cheezhead haz a sad.

Yesterday as I was boppin' around twitter, I happened on a registration announcement from the Cellcom Marathon, and a notice of the course changing.  Naturally I clicked on it and was saddened to read this:

"The courses have not been finalized for 2012, but the course has typically had a net elevation change around four feet. There is one major change planned for the route this season. Due to the construction scheduled for the south end zone of Lambeau Field, the 2012 Cellcom Green Bay Marathon routes need to be altered and will not take a lap around Lambeau Field during the final mile.


“The Cellcom Green Bay Marathon is an event that draws in the whole community and the Packer organization really enjoys being a part of the excitement,” said Aaron Popkey, manager of corporate communications for the Green Bay Packers, “We worked hard to find a way with the construction to get the runners through the stadium and weren’t successful for 2012. We look forward to having the course return to the inside of Lambeau Field in 2013.”

So I'm bummed, but I won't be running Green Bay in 2012.  But it's on the schedule for 2013.

Now here is the time when you tell me what spring race you're running and bribe me with ice cream to come run with you............. and GO!

Sad! I was totally thinking of running Green Bay in 2012, but I think I will wait until 2013. :) I know Grandma's isn't technically spring, but if you haven't run it, you should!

That is the most depressing news I've ever heard. I may look for something different to and save GB for 2013 :(

I was so sad about that yesterday. We will all just have to do it in 2013. Maybe some year I will even come your direction for a race.

Bummer about the change. :( I don't know that I will do a spring marathon, but I have done the Earth Day 1/2 or 20 mile (St.Cloud,MN) the past few years and plan on it again. The 20 mile is a perfect training run for a May marathon.

Well that stinks - at least it is only for one year though and not a permanent change!

So sad. (Shedding a single huge green and yellow tear)

Hopefully the Pack getting BACK TO BACK Super Bowl wins will help ease the pain!
