Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday. I hope you are all having a great week and running strong. Today, I wanted to share my experience so far with the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. However, I am not going to be talking about my actual training, I am going to talk about the people of Cleveland. OK, if you are from Cleveland don’t freak out!
Back in December when I was chosen to be a blogger for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, I was super stoked. This is a huge honor for anyone, but what made it extra special is the fact that I am not from Cleveland. I am from Chicago. If you didn’t know we have a pretty big marathon here too…like a really big one.
In the few months I have been training and blogging for this race, I have come to see the LOVE the people of Cleveland have for their city and especially this race. This is not just a race to most people from Ohio. It is a chance to run their city and finish feeling proud and accomplished. It is a great PR course and it seems most people do just that.
I have never run the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, in fact, I have never been to Cleveland ( How is that so?). But I am spending 18 weeks of my life training to be the best I can be for this race. I am excited to spend the weekend exploring the city before toeing the line on Sunday morning to tackle the marathon.
I have to thank the other official bloggers for this race. Most of them are not only from Cleveland, but are running this race for the 2nd and 3rd time. Their love and excitement is contagious and I am more excited to run this race then any others I have. Even that big one I mentioned before. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms.
