About Me

  • Running club(s):

    Runners Edge of the Rockies

  • Rave race:
  • Race that's calling my name:

    Little Rock Marathon

  • I run because:

    I run because it is better than sitting at home. I walk now per doctor’s orders, (two knee replacements). And it takes me half the day to complete a marathon, but I still enjoy getting out and moving even at a turtle’s pace. Just makes it harder to find races since I need very generous finish times.

This was my first overnight race. I wondered in advance if staying awake would be an issue; it was not. A few hills the first half of the race but nothing serious. If you do this and will be on the course at daybreak, 5-ish hours, be prepared for bugs! The race was well organized and the Race Director provided clear instructions. The bus to/from the start was great. The shirt is a nice change from the gray ones I’ve received recently and I love the alien medal. I did not love the OYO Hotel and would probably have stayed at the Holiday Inn or even MGM Grand if I had realized that they were in easy walking distance to catch the bus. Overall, a good experience and I’m glad I did it though I may stick to daylight hours for now.

Mostly flat, mostly scenic course. Started in a pretty neighborhood, wound our way around to the Centennial Trail along the Spokane River. The bus for the early start walkers didn’t show. Ryan, the race director, kept us informed about what was, and wasn’t, happening. We ended up on the same bus as the marathon runners and started about 20 minutes later than planned. The situation was very well handled. All the other busses taking runners to the start showed up. There were a couple of food trucks (quesadillas and ice cream!) at the end. The weather was cool and breezy at the start. Much of the course is shaded which is nice. Hotels are easy walking distance from the finish and the parking lot to get shuttle busses to the start. Friendly volunteers at packet pick-up and along the course. Not a lot of crowd support but more than most trail races. I would definitely recommend this race.

I loved this small city marathon. As a walker I felt welcomed, not just tolerated. Especially appreciated the early start for the velocity challenged. There were changes due to COVID so I can’t really address what the expo would normally be. But the volunteers were great. The race director and his frequent emails were informative and humorous. The course is almost pancake flat with most of it being shaded. This was my 23rd marathon, 4th as a walker after knee replacements. I would recommend this race for runners and walkers alike.
