I hope everyone's training has been going well. This has probably been the most frustrating winter I can remember. Good news is that we've had a couple 50 degree days recently and a few more coming up in our 10 day forecast. Speaking of news, lots of big news recently from the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. For those of you who aren't aware. This year's race will feature all new routes!!! Recently, the organizers for the race reach out us runners for on feedback on route changes. It was an overwhelming response that the race switch to an all Westside route. It was really nice of them to take our opinions and change the route based on our feedback. I'm a 2-time Rite Aid Cleveland Marathoner and admit there will be pieces of the Eastside portion that will be missed, but I think everyone will be pleased to see more of what the Westside has to offer. I've been a resident of the Westside for 17 months now and know that it will be an amazing setting to host the 2014 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon.
To celebrate the new routes, the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon has graciously awarded me to opportunity to give away a FREE ENTRY to either the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, or Full Marathon!!!!!!
This contest will last until Monday 3/24/14 and is only open to those who have not registered. To enter: please leave a comment with your name, direct message me @Beal88 on twitter, direct message me on Facebook, or leave a comment on my Facebook post.
I had wanted to post some route photos, but my phone is being a jerk and won't upload them to my computer. So, below is a link to the website where you can find the routes. Hopefully I can get them uploaded and add them later. I also hope to bike ride these routes prior to race day to provide some feedback.
