Well, it’s official, I will be attempting a second marathon this year after all. After having to drop from the full marathon to the half at Rock ‘n’ Roll DC, I was disappointed and was contemplating whether to try to add a fall marathon instead. Originally, I registered for the Marine Corps Marathon lottery and even convinced my boss to sign up too. Then, in a moment of brilliance insanity, while I was waiting to hear about that race, I registered for the Asheville marathon & half challenge which will take place next March – a half marathon and a full in one weekend!
Unfortunately, when the emails started coming out last month for the Marine Corps Marathon, I didn’t get in (but my boss did, so he’ll be doing his first full in October!). So, I started looking at other fall marathons since I don’t think it would be a good idea to have my second marathon ever come on the heels of a half… which lead me to: Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah in November! With this race, I’ll get to check off a few things: a marathon, a race in GA, my 3rd RnR in the Southern Charm series and my 4th RnR overall.
As an added bonus, a few days after I registered, I found out they will be offering the sweet finisher jackets for the Savannah marathon too! I was really disappointed to miss out on this swag, especially after I saw it in person in DC. So, in November, this will be mine!
Anyone else going to be earning this jacket with me in November?
