This was my first marathon, and you know how they say go big or go home? We went big on this one. Traveled out all the way from Kansas City to get a change of scenery after a humid summer of running and training. The timing of this was perfect as the trees were vibrant, the running weather was perfect, and the course that dips through Acadia is as beautiful as you’d expect. This is a smaller race (~600 marathoners + additional half-marathoners at a different start point) but I like that element. What I didn’t love was the elevation profile of around 1600 feet worth of climbs! It definitely added to my total time, but hey, the challenge of a marathon + the hills adds to the satisfaction. If I could make changes, it would come in the final 6 miles… It’s almost all uphill and beyond that, it’s just a big, open highway. No road closures, not even cones set up through parts of it. It was very challenging mentally to stay motivated in this stretch, and felt a bit amateur to not have a lane closed for it.

Overall, glad I did this beautiful run. It was a one-and-done-run for me, but I have the memories, photos, and the epic lobster claw medal to show for it.
