I feel very lucky that I was able to snag 1 of the 30,000 available spots for the Marine Corps Marathon on October 28th. Last year the race sold out in 28 hours and this year, it sold out in 2 hours and 41 minutes.
I’m really nervous about registering for a full marathon considering that I haven’t even run a half yet but I’ve heard wonderful things about this race and think it will be a good one for my first marathon. I did have a fleeting ‘WTF have you just done?’ thought running through my head after I clicked submit but I’m really excited about training and hopefully meeting up with some high school friends and twitter/blogger peeps in DC.
Have any of you ever run the Marine Corps Marathon?
