After weeks of agonizing which full marathon to pick as my 1st (& maybe only), I have finally picked the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) in Washington, DC on October 27th. Why? First, it’s a tremendous honor to run in a race dedicated to the USMC. After all they do for us & what they go through for us, how could I not feel more than enough inspiration to run 26.2 miles? Second, the course has to be unbelievably beautiful. Check it out here. Third, MCM has a reputation for outstanding crowd/spectator support. I feel this is something I will desperately need, especially if I run this marathon alone.
Registration opens on Wednesday, March 27th at noon. Last year, the race filled up in less than 3 hours. Needless to say, these time constraints have me a little anxious. I have nightmares already that my computer crashes at 11:59am on March 27th. Stay tuned for updates regarding a successful registration!
