Marathon #3 - registered!

Cross training on the schedule; decided to run today 5 miles instead since I have the day off and could run in the daylight.


I gave myself a Christmas present yesterday.
their logo-sweet!

Registration in the 2012 Grand Rapids Marathon.  It's a smaller race(3,000 in the marathon and 2,500 in the half marathon) located on the West side of Michigan.  The race director has the world record for finishing 7 marathons on all seven continents -- 25 days, 18 hours, 10 minutes.  He's also run 229 races of at least the marathon distance!  Incredible.  You can read about it HERE.  I can't wait to meet him.

This looks like an awesome marathon.  Small enough to PR(hopefully), large enough to have a little crowd support(which I don't really need).  This one starts and ends in downtown Grand Rapids.  It will be the first marathon I have done that I need to sleep in a hotel the night before the race.  The course also looks incredible:

300 days and counting!!!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Congrats on registering for number 3! I was just looking at registering for my 2012 races this morning :)

  2. Congrats on #3. I got to run in the daylight to today. BOY it sure was nice to see where I was going and the sun even popped out. Tomorrow back to darkness.

  3. Hello! I recently stumbled upon your blog.
    I have run Grand Rapids 3 times (full twice and half once). It's a great marathon! The race director is right there on the finish line hugging everyone who crosses!
    The Holiday Inn Express on Pearl St. is walking distance; it's nice and very close.
    Take the race director a beer from a local brewery!
