26.2 With Donna Marathon - 2014


“26.2 With Donna” was supposed to be my first marathon of the season but somehow it became my 3rd behind Jacksonville Bank and Disney.  Yes, I have a problem.  It is not hard to convince me to register for a race.

I think it's time for a new pillow.

This is an AWESOME race.  Everything about it is well run:  parking, space heaters before the race, transportation, crowd support, after party food, beautiful run on the beach, street parties, etc, neighborhoods handing out food, booze and water.  I have done over 2 dozen running races and this is by far the best run race.  This race is extremely fun and is my favorite race.

The crowd support is awesome.  Along Atlantic Avenue everyone is partying.  On Atlantic Avenue, I received three full beers, one mimosa and had six port-a-potty stops.  I was ”saving the ta-tas” while killing my liver!

A new marathon PR!!

Apparently the way to PR in a race is to visit two Jacksonville breweries the day before a race, eat ton of fried food,  drink beer during the race and stop six times for potty brakes because I PRed by about 14 minutes!!
