Erie Marathon

I have decided to run the Erie Marathon in Erie, Pennsylvania on 9 September 2018.  Because the early September race date, my 20 week training will start next week.  Hoohoo.

The marathon course is around the Presque Isle State Park which sticks out into the Lake Erie (see below).  One loop around the park is Half Marathon, so twice is the Marathon.

It is a flat and paved course.  Of course it seems every race claims to be flat, but the Erie Marathon has less than 250 foot total change in elevation from start to finish.  In fact, it boasts a 44% Boston Qualify rate in 2017.  Double hoohoo.

Now that I have decided on the marathon, next is figuring out my training plan insofar as what goals will I be targeting to accomplish, which aspect of the training will I modify to fine tune my body and fitness level, etc.  I will sort them out in short order.  So stay tune.

Which race are you training for?

    How interesting! I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and I live only 40 minutes from Erie. I, myself have never run that particular race. But I have lots of friends who have and they enjoy it. Good luck!!
