This Is It – Remember to HAVE FUN!!

This is it. It’s Cleveland Marathon week! 


You’ve probably read all about and prepared for fueling, water stops, what to wear, how much to carb-load, etc.

But have you thought about what you want your EXPERIENCE to be like?


We all have different goals. Some want to PR, some want to “just finish”, and some are out to pace others. But, no matter what, PLEASE don’t forget to HAVE FUN!

This could quite possibly be a day you remember forever.

So remember to:

  • smile for the photographers
  • high five the kids cheering you on
  • thank the volunteers
  • give your friends and family a hug/kiss/thumbs up when you see them


And respect the marathon. Respect the distance. Don’t try to beat it, because it WILL beat you if you let it. Follow your plan, roll with what mother nature offers on Sunday, and take it all in. Again, it could quite possibly be a day you remember forever (can you tell how much I cherish my Cleveland Marathon memories?? :) ).

To everyone running on Sunday – go get it, and make some kick ass memories!

Are you racing this weekend???

    YES – it can be so easy to get caught up in the idea of PRs, nerves, whatever. It’s so important to remember why you’re there – the love of running (hopefully).
