From the Halls of Montezuma

Registration opened today, so I wasted no time getting myself signed up. I immediately called Dr. John to make sure they had signed up as well. Although it won't officially be another state, I'm sure it will be quite the experience. June 25th will begin the official training. I still hope to sneak something else in there, but it is less of a priority now that I have an official goal.

Someday I'm going to run that one too - but in the meantime, I'll live vicariously through you! It was my favorite spectator race for sure.

PS. Shouldn't your blog title be changing after Eugene?

Interestingly, there are different clubs for this type of thing, with different rules.

There's the 50 States Marathon Club, and the 50&DC Marathon Group. (DC is not required for the first group.) So even if it doesn't count as a state, it still helps with your eligibility.

BTW, both groups require you to have completed marathons in 10 states to be a member. So you're good to go. (But yes, you should change your blog title!)

The madness continues!! ;-)
You are one tough dude Darrell- keep plugging!

I knew it wouldn't take long for you to get the next one on the schedule. I thought big road marathons were a thing of the past for me, but I may just have to do this one too someday. I've heard so many good things. Yay for you! : )

ha.. I was going to correct you wiht the (10 down 41 more to go) but I guess the MCM doesn't count as one of the 50 states :)

Thank you for stopping by. You will love putting New Mexico on your list. The altitude is a bit of a problem in most places, but it's a runner's state.

I liked all the photos of you...you look strong dude.

hey darrell,

you are a monster, buddy. i am glad to hear about your plans for the MCM. you get to enjoy a little history as your run this time.

i am looking forward to seeing you this weekend at Malibu Creek. Hopefully, I won't be too far behind you to get some time to hang out after the race. Any extra running beyond the 14 miles, I am going to do before the race so that we can catch up.

- Matt

Darrell - the start and finish of the MCM are in Virginia. Personally, after last year, I decided I could check off Virginia AND DC from my list.
It's a great course and crowds, not to mention the Marines and the sights.
