I am an official blogger for the Blue Ridge Marathon in 2014. I ran this marathon earlier this year, and need to SCREAM out loud about how great it was! I am sure 2014 will be even more fantastic! Stay tuned for more blog posts about this beautiful race in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I took some photos from the event this year and wanted to share them, sort of as a tease for what is to come. When you see the following sign, you just have this feeling like things are about to get real, and fast!
Nervous excitement? Oh yeah! When you pick up that Bib, and race shirt, doesn’t it make you feel a mixture of emotions? Especially when you are about to run America’s Toughest Road Marathon…….
As you toe the line, you have to remember why you are there. To challenge yourself, perhaps to a higher level than ever before. To run an absolutely amazing race in some of the most scenic surroundings you may possibly ever run. The views, the vistas, the mountains, will challenge you and leave you breathless in more ways than one.
Coming into the finish, you will be relieved, joyful and feel amazing accomplishment in what you have done. To run this race is to feel alive! Here’s a look at some post race photos. Please consider joining me in 2014, I am sure it will be another Epic adventure!
