Earlier this year they announced that Seattle will be the host city for their latest marathon/half marathon event on June 27, 2009. I really want to do that one, it sounds like fun. I am just going to have to wait a little bit to see if my life scheduling allows me to participate in that one, but my mom also expressed an interest in doing it with me. And any chance I get to travel to and participate in these races with my mom means a lot to me.
But the thing that has me really excited is the item I read in the local newspaper yesterday… The Las Vegas Marathon is going Rock ‘n’ Roll for 2009. The LV Marathon has had some hardships and I so want the local race to be a success. It has such potential to be a huge draw and hopefully this new branding/partnership will be just the shot in the arm that it needed.
The 2008 event is not a Rock ‘n’ Roll race, but it should still be fun. I’ll be racing the half marathon this December so if you’re planning a trip to Vegas for the event, let me know. I’ll keep an eye out for you!
