It's Official - I Have Signed up for a Fall Marathon

After much thought,.. After much soul searching, I have finally decided that I'm doing a fall marathon and I have chosen which one I'm doing. If you follow me on my personal Facebook, or follow me on Instagram, you already know. I plan on running the Kansas City Marathon.

I will be running the full while my wife will run the half.

Why Kansas City? I wanted to do something different. I wanted a destination marathon. Plus, we've been meaning to visit some friends out in Kansas (about 25 miles away from the race), but never have been able to put something together. I figured this way we can finally get our butts out there and at the same time, we can spend some time with them. This marathon being on Saturday makes it perfect! We can go out there a few days before, Spend time with our friends, race Saturday, and then have the rest of the weekend to hang out with them.

I'm hoping for a great memorable weekend! 

I have yet to lay out my training plan, but I have been following friends plans that are running fall marathons. So I'm on the right track. As I type this, KS Marathon is 75 days away. I say bring it!!

KS or bust!! Follow me as I train for this marathon! Woot, woot!!! And yes... Marathon beard is already in progress!

Have a great week!!

The beard makes me laugh! We LOVE traveling for races, makes the best memories! Have fun!

Should be a fun race. And we get to enjoy it vicariously. This time I'm embracing the beard. Only figuratively though - I'm sure that it'd be a bit scratchy to embrace literally.

You've certainly begun the most important part of the training.....the beard. This sounds like a great race.

MARATHON BEAAAARDDDD!!! But seriously bro, I can't say it enough - hammer those hills. KC isn't the hilliest marathon I've ever done ... but it's one them! Good luck with your training.

As a Kansas Citian, I say, "Welcome!" I will be running the Half Marathon that day - my first half, actually. I hope you enjoy our city - we're usually pretty friendly! (P.S. The marathon/half marathon will be taking place in Missouri - not Kansas - and we are sorta' particular about that state line that divides the city. Hee hee)

Good luck!
