Another race of course! I decided this weekend I need a new challenge. Running Scotiabank was fun, but I want to try something a little different, at least different to me.
The more I think about this marathon, the more appealing it is. I can get another 30 + run in this weekend, have another 3 week taper focused on short tempo runs. I also like that this course starts in one location, and finishes in another, not out and back. It is also a net downhill, and finishes by the base of one of the wonders of the world. Plus it starts in one country, and finishes in another. How cool is that? As a bonus, it's close to home, and being in late October, it ought to be somewhat cool.
Of course I could just wait and run Philly in November as planned, but I sort of want to run another race before then, and something I haven't done yet. It will be relatively inexpensive for travel expenses.
Any thoughts? Price goes up Oct 1, so I will make my decision soon.
Thanks for reading!
