Sorry Dallas White Rock 26.2

For a while now I've been debating on which 26.2 to endure at the close of 2009. Well sorry to say... the choice wasn't not the Dallas White Rock Marathon. I love the energy, the route, the crowds, and the spirit of that marathon, but in these times, especially with a trip to Lake Placid and another sign up for an Ironman in 2010, I wanted to stay local yet get away.

So my choice you ask...



Philly PA... here I come...

More to come...

Great choice! The course is nice and flat, perfect for a pr. And you're going to love the finish in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum.

Sweet, that's awesome. I had a blast last year on that course. Super-super-fast, and nice cool temps guaranteed.

Glad you picked Philadelphia! I see you're starting to like the East Coast.

Jackie said...

Hmmm. My husband and I were thinking of starting to train for a half marathon. Maybe this one is a good one to shoot for....

I've heard amazing things about this race as well — good pick! The course is supposedly both flat and scenic, which is a lovely and rare combo. I tried to sign up for the half last year, but waited too long. I'll look forward to hearing what you think about it!
