Upcoming Races for 2014 and #RWRunStreak

First off, I still  haven't picked a spring-time full marathon.  I am flirting around with doing the Salt Lake City Marathon.  I got a coupon for $10 off and while I haven't committed to it, it is ruminating in the back of my mind.  Problem is, that is one week after the Summerlin Half...  I really need to jump onto Marathon Guide and find one that is close by yet still an adventure to go to.

That being said, for 2014 I am committed and have paid to enter into the following races:

Sweet Hearts 5K in Bountiful, Utah -- - mid February

Las Vegas Full Marathon - Las Vegas, NV --‎ - November 16 (this will be my 6th year in a row!!!) - I got in for $99 + service charge

So far this winter training has been going well.  I've reduced my mileage a little and have been getting in 2 - 3 speed sessions a week.  I am really hoping to knock my times back down to 2011 levels.  

In addition, I am doing the Runners World Magazine Running Streak (#RWRunStreak).  So I am logging at least 1 mile every day between Thanksgiving and New Years.  So far, everything is going dandy.  I just make sure I take my "easy days" easy...

After work, I've been doing most of my running along 1000E, Sandy Utah.  I am not thrilled with the location, but it is flat and it is on the way home.  Plus the Wasatch Mountains are in view.  Here is the parking lot near the park where I run:
