It's official! I registered for marathon #2!!
On November 10, 2013, I will be running the Outer Banks Marathon in North Carolina!
I have never been to the Outer Banks before, so I'm pretty excited to check it out. The course looks beautiful -- many of the miles are along the ocean. Most of the course is flat except for two bridges. It is a smaller race with about 1200 participants in the marathon last year, and 2600 in the half marathon.
I am looking forward to marathon training again! This year I have been incorporating speed work into my half marathon training throughout this spring. I am planning to continue this as I move into training for the full marathon.
Why OBX Marathon? Well, Ryan's aunt & uncle have a beach house there so we have a place to stay. Plus, we thought it would be fun to do a run in a new location and new state. Sweet! A few friends who ran the Las Vegas Marathon with us plan to rub OBX too.
Have you run the in the Outer Banks before?
How long did you wait between your first and second marathon? For me, it will be 11 months. I focused this spring on the half marathon distance instead.
