As you read this, I am most likely stomping down the country roads of one of my most favorite marathons. This time it is called the Valentines Marathon. They have one of these marathons for every holiday of the year as a way for the Marathon Maniacs to accumulate marathon finishes. It is a very low key atmosphere and there will probably only be around 40 or so people since it is not prime weather, but the marathon maniacs are a hardcore bunch of runners. The assortment of food consists of the following:
- Lots of regular bread
- Sandwich meat
- Donuts galore
- Sugar and diet pop
- Mayo, Mustard, etc.
- No veggies
- And an assortment of other marathoner/race food.
It is all laid out on the table and it is make it and help yourself. I will try and get a picture of it for you guys. Have a good day and I will report back tomorrow regarding how the race went. Here is a little blurb from the marathon site
- 8th annual holiday events with lots of postrace food and quality awards. There will be lots of hot chili or soup, along with ham, turkey, roast beef and cheese sandwiches. There will also be chips, nachos, cookies, pretzels, etc. Bottled water and other sport drinks will also be available is drink after the race, along with coffee and apple cider. HOT SHOWERS: Are available in the campgrounds, bring some quarters and a towel. RESULTS: Will be posted at http://www.ontherunevents.com, http://www.racecenter.com and http://www.nwrunner.com.
