These posts don't exactly fall under the 30-day category. But like me, I know many of you may enjoy traveling for races so I wanted to include a few of the posts I've written while traveling for marathons.
In all, I've run 16 marathons on 4 continents. The Honolulu Marathon was my first and the one I've run the most times (10). It's a terrific race if you're looking for a great place to run your first. I've also traveled to run marathons in Rio de Janeiro, Anchorage, Toronto, Calgary, Marrakech, and Mont Blanc.
I am by no means a fast runner. In fact, I'm much more of a jogger than a runner. A typical marathon takes me around 5 hours to finish. So no, I'm not likely to win any medals, but I do enjoy the challenge of training for a race and the race day experience.
Not to mention running is a fabulous way to stay fit while traveling anywhere in the world!
Here are a few of the posts I've written about the marathon experience:
