Who just got their official acceptance into Marathon Maniacs (MM)? This girl!
Just how did I do it? I ran two marathons within 16 days and earned my way into the club as a Bronze level member: Rock ‘n Roll New Orleans and the 41st Annual Tallahassee Marathon. There are eight more levels of MM to work up to.
Do you think you might be a marathon maniac??? Here are a few questions to help you realize how crazy you might be…. (taken from http://www.marathonmaniacs.com
Third time taking on the Tallahassee Marathon (second time taking on the full) and I have yet to show up feeling 100%. I tapered the best I could considering having run New Orleans just two weeks before.
The Tallahassee Marathon is a smaller race that brings out about 850 half marathoners and less than 350 marathoners. Hal Higdon was the guest speaker at the EXPO and I believe runners from all around Tallahassee came to the Expo to hear him speak. With two little girls in tow and standing room only to hear Hal Higdon speak, I decided to listen for just a few minutes. There were a few more vendors at the Expo this year and it was great to see and talk to some running buddies I hadn’t seen since last year’s marathon.
