My marathon feet are itching again! Are we up for another challenge and to run for a good cause which may include your health? I've learned earlier on that part of a successful physical fitness program is to have a goal in mind
. I'd like to share this marathon as a goal and see meetup members start their own collection of finisher medals.
Folks, we have less than 7 months to train and prepare for this. I ran the Carlsbad Marathon this year last January and I must say ... it is a beautiful, scenic route along the shorelines of North County. Like the last Rock N' Roll Marathon, running a half (13 miles) instead of a whole marathon is also an option, and, they give you 4 1/2 hours to finish it. However, 6 hours is the time limit, regardless, which puts much more pressure on the full marathoners. Furthermore, this is a more challenging course compared to the Rock N' Roll Marathon with more inclines involved. But hey ... we meetup folks are always up for a challenge anyway.
Although it's one of the more popular marathons in Southern California, the Carlsbad Marathon is smaller in size capping off its entries at 8,500 for the half and 1,500 for the full. Therefore, I encourage you to register as early as you can. This race last January sold out atleast a couple of months before. To register for the marathon and obtain further information, refer to the official website http://www.carlsbadmarathon.com/
