I absolutely love CDA, so getting to run a marathon there was amazing! The views were incredible! There were a bunch of covid-19 precautions in place, so I felt very safe the entire time. I was actually nervous that it would feel lonely with all of the social distancing in place, but we were still able to see other runners and spectators from a safe distance (so it was still very fun and festive!). I will absolutely be back for 2021!

So glad I did this race!! The crowds and volunteers were awesome, the course was beautiful (and I loved spotting houses from Fixer Upper along the way), and I loved the finisher food (brisket fajitas, yes please!!!). The course was hilly (I actually really like hills, though), so probably not the best race for PR-ing. For just a good, fun view of the city, you can’t beat it 🙂

Those are pretty much the highlights! You obviously know by now that the hills are no joke (it always surprises me when people choose Big Sur as their first marathon… although it basically guarantees they’ll PR their next race). The piano at the top of the hill (combined with the views) is by far one of the most magical race moments one could ever have. I don’t ever stop during races to take pictures, but I make exceptions for this race 🙂

I might be slightly biased now, but this was an amazing race! I ended up registering last minute because both the Houston and Austin Marathons had such hot/muggy weather, and thank goodness I did! The weather was perfect, the course was great (it was my first time in Fort Worth, so I was super pumped to run through the Stockyards), and the volunteers were incredible! There were plenty of free parking options for both the expo and race day, and all of the logistics were super easy. Anyway, this was my first Cowtown race to run, and, somehow, every single star aligned on Sunday and I was able to Boston Qualify for the first time (and what better way to celebrate than with chicken noodle soup, Blue Bell ice cream, and ringing the big cowbell!)! You can’t beat 40 degrees and overcast for a race, and every single other detail was perfect! Again, thank you so much!!! I’m still on cloud 9 🙂
