About half an hour ago I discovered this website. And I haven't been able to look at anything else since. Don't worry, you don't have to go to the link, I'm happy to talk about it right here. And I will.
This website provides marathon tours in various places around the world. That means, you pay for a package and you're signed up to run a marathon in some awesome location as well as spend some days around race day touring. Some options are: Dublin, Rome, Athens, Paris, Reykjavik, Maui, Easter Island, The Great Wall, Berlin, Cape Town (this one is 34 miles, it's called the two oceans marathon because you run from the Atlantic to the Indian), and London. And that's not an exhaustive list.
Okay, really? What's not to love about this possibility? And you don't even have to run a marathon. They give an option for non-runners, and some of the locations have half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks. Something for everyone.
Now that I know these exist, I have to run one. Yes, HAVE to. And I will.
Not sure when or where, but I will.
Until then, I'm dreaming.
Oh, and here's a picture of the Kenya marathon. How awesome would that be?!
And until then, there's Bryce.
