*** We’re Titanium Marathon Maniacs!! *** Our 5th marathon in the month of May was also our 30th in the last 11 months, covering a combination of 30 different US States or Countries. This earned us the top level in the club (10 stars), a club formed for serial marathoners and a status level that only 2% of the members have achieved. When we first joined we thought this level was insane, but we now realise this goes back to limits being only what you believe them to be. Full race report is online.
The humidity made marathon #64 a tough race and a draining second half. We were saved only by lemon ice being handed out.. if only all races had this on offer. Despite losing most of our body weight through water-loss, we snatched another sub 4 and Leah broke the course record for Colorado females! Full details and some more pictures now available here
We managed to fly out to Indiana the day before returning to the UK for the London Marathon and checked off another US State. Always nice when unexpected plans come together and it had the added bonus of tiring us out for the overnight flight across the Atlantic. The most unique part about this race was the game of guessing the celebrity at each mile marker. Very inventive and a good way to pass the miles. Full details.
For my 50th and Leah’s 40th Marathon we got to meet Dean Karnazes at the Seattle Marathon Expo and get a copy of his 50 Marathons in 50 States in 50 Days book signed! Although it was cold we had great fun exploring Seattle and an enjoyable marathon running through the city and the surrounding area. Back to form we felt strong throughout the race and completed our 20th marathon of the year. Full details here.
