5 Marine Corps Marathon This Sunday!
Hey everybody, this Sunday morning, October 28th, is the 32nd Annual Marine Corps Marathon, otherwise known amongst the running crowd as the "MCM"!
Open ceremonies kick off bright & early at 07:20 hours, & the marathon itself officially starts at 08:00 hours! (For a complete list of events, click here.)
If you are are planning on running this race, good luck! If you plan to be a spectator, you can click here for information about where to find the appropriate, designated spectator locations to cheer on your favorite MCM runner!
You can also send your favorite MCM runner a note of encouragement at http://www.mcmgreetings.com.
Speaking of which, one of my blogger pals, Cymrusteve of the 3 fabulous blogs, Cymru66, Run Bulldog Run, & Everything Kylie, will be running this marathon. So, let's all wish him good luck!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he'll have better weather for his race than we've been having all this week! It looks like Sunday's forecast (thankfully!) calls for sunshine & a temperature of 55 degrees! Yea!
If you'd like to track his progress (&/or other runners who'll be racing) in the MCM using Remote Runner Tracking, you can do so by signing up here. To follow Steve's race times, please be sure to enter Steve's last name as "Speirs" and first name as "Steve." (Here's Steve's original post about the topic.)
Although I won't be able to be there to cheer him on in person, I'll be cheering him on virtually & following his race progress this Sunday from my laptop.
Hope you have a great race, Steve!
