What Do You Mean the Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon Is In 4 days??

It really does feel like I just started training. Wasn’t December just three weeks ago? That polar vortex was two days ago, right?


Wow, time does fly when you aren’t paying attention, or when you are stuck inside the house under 100-ish inches of snow. The winter running season wasn’t the best one for me to train for a marathon, thus forcing me to “only” run the Owens Corning Half Marathon. As a runner and former (one-time) marathoner I think it’s funny that I say only, when I refer to a distance that is obviously impressive to the non-runners.

Do you remember where to go and when to get there this weekend? Here is a reminder:

The Home Stretch

There is more information about the race here too. Remember where the race started and why, with the history of the race. There are so many charities that you can run for.

If you can’t run this year, and you are looking ahead to 2015, which race distance will you pick? Do you know when you should start training for that race?

I will be dressed something like this on race day, so if you see me please introduce yourself and I can take a picture and feature you here on There Are 2 Sides! Or just come and tell me that slow runners are amazing. Or just smile awkwardly. I also like Jet Blackberry GU, gifts of gel or chomp are accepted. Any of the above are acceptable.

Do you have any questions about the race?

    I know… 4 days, right? (or is it 3 now?) Time sure did fly! I was excited to go cheer on my husband for the Boston marathon this week, and then I realized the closer we got to Boston, the closer we got to my big race at GCM! [insert nervous butterflies in the stomach here] I don’t want to jinx anything, but the weather forecast is looking good, and hopefully all those miles we logged in the snow will count as double training this year and leave us all very well prepared for our races. If not, I’m planning on Columbus being my “plan B” race. Good luck on race day, and if I see you, I will say Hi!

  2. Good Luck this weekend!!
