Twin Cities Marathon Recap - Oct 14, 2015

Matt and I both absolutely loved our Twin Cities experience. Aside from struggling through the late miles on Summit Avenue, everything was amazing. I highly recommend this race. While it took a couple years in between for me to get around to running my second marathon, this one immediately left me anxious to go run another one. At the very least, it looks like I’ll have to plan on heading to Boston in 2017!

Guest Post: My First Marathon Experience by Eric Roling - Oct 12, 2015

On Sunday, I completed my first full marathon at the Twin Cities Marathon. It was definitely a learning experience. I met my goal. I bonked. I recovered and finished.

Twin Cities Marathon Race Recap - Oct 7, 2015

Race number 37 and state number 26 is in the books! I like to have a couple days after a race to process everything about the race and remember all I can about what happened over the course of 26.2 miles. Without further ado, here is the Twin Cities Marathon race recap!

Twin Cities Marathon Recap - Oct 6, 2015

When I think about recommending a race to others I ask them about two different things: are they looking to run a good time or are they looking to have a good time. Very few races offer both except for the fact that running a good time can often trump whether you had a good time along the course. Having said that, the Twin Cities marathon is not an easy course. It is not exceedingly difficult either, especially in today's world of making races difficult for difficult's sake alone. However, if you wish to be involved in a race which is very well-run, extremely well-supported and showcases two beautiful urban areas in the United States, you would be hard pressed to find anything much better than this race. Will you run a good time? Perhaps, but you will work for it. Will you have a good time? The odds are highly likely you will.
