Fall running is my favorite time to run! The temps are cooler and the the changing leaves offer beautiful views on most courses! This fall I will be taking my big goals to Wisconsin for the Madison Marathon on November 8th. As I sit here currently, I have never been to Wisconsin but this race will actually be my second in Madison as I will be running a half marathon there in August!
What makes this adventure even crazier is that I will be running a marathon in Indianapolis on 11/7/20. Yes, that is correct! I have committed to run 2 full marathons in one weekend! This is my biggest running weekend yet and I am scared and excited all at once!
I couldn’t take this on without the support of some pretty special people. Of course my biggest running supporter, my husband, is helping me work out all the logistics and I have no doubt he will make sure I am in the right places at the right time. I also have a best running friend that is from Wisconsin and she has also promised to make the trip to Wisconsin as well (to run of course!) I can’t wait to hear all about her hometown and get the inside scoop on the best places to eat after the race!
But even if I didn’t have a best running friend from Wisconsin, the Madison Marathon would still be high on my list of races that I would love to run and here’s why:
- FREE RACE PHOTOS compliments of Madison Marathon presented by SSM Health
- FREE runner tracking via the Madison Marathon App
- 1 complimentary Michelob Ultra beer (for those 21+) and a Wisconsin Tailgate (mac ‘n cheese, chili or brat) at the Post-Race Party
- Premium soft-feel, long-sleeved technical shirt (gender-specific)
- Awesome finisher medal
- Pace groups for all speeds
- Professionally timed and managed
- Start & Finish on beautiful Capitol Square
- Boston Qualifier
Now let’s be honest – I’m not a contender to qualify for Boston (even running a marathon on fresh legs that didn’t run a marathon the day before!) but there is something about being on a course with fellow runners that are chasing that BQ! One of my favorite things to do is to follow a races hashtag on Twitter or Instagram and cheer on others accomplishments after a big race!! You can follow the Madison Marathon and watch as other runners like myself train and prepare for the race in November!
