Top 10 Marathons To-Do List: Eugene Marathon

Marathon #8 on my current Top 10 Marathons To-Do List is the Eugene Marathon.

Why?  It gets fabulous reviews from marathonguide.com, it’s supposed to be relatively speedy and it’s in a part of the country I’ve never been to.  It’s held the first week in May, which is a decent time of the year.  I’d have to start training in the middle of our Minnesota winter, but would also get to finish it up when it (hopefully/usually) isn’t too horribly cold and snowy here.  It’s also in a part of the country, and at a time of year, when the weather is all but guaranteed to be decent for marathon running.  So many of my races have had sucky weather, that it would be a nice change to not really have to worry about the weather being a huge factor on race day.

Jen ran it last year and loved it.  Mindi is running it this year and is gonna kick some major butt.

Anyone else run it?  What’d you think?

    I certainly haven’t run it, but I lived in Eugene for four years and loved it. Well worth a visit.

  2. You should try running instead of that biking stuff you do!
