Back to Baltimore #KingCrabChallenge
Looks like I’m going back to Baltimore this Saturday to run the Baltimore Half Marathon and the FINAL LEG of the King Crab Challenge. I am no stranger to this race and completed the half in 2013, to read more about it check it out here. It is a great race, the crowds are fantastic, lots of volunteers and who wouldn’t love an Under Armour premium. I will admit a lot of planning for this race has been super last-minute. I knew I was doing this race March. I had no idea how I was getting to packet pick up or the race until about 4 hours ago. I pricelined a hotel when I realized that there’s no way I was going to make it there in the AM. So I snagged myself a 4 star hotel at the start line for a 2 star price! BOO-YAH!
Also let’s talk about how Friends is coming to NETFLIX!! Fun fact Friends is my favorite TV show. I use to drive my roommates crazy in college and play the entire DVD box set of all 10 seasons from start to finish over and over. In truth I still do this about once a year. But I digress… back to Baltimore.
Anyway, I threw a bunch of items in a bag last night and hopefully something will work out for the race. I am really just running this race to complete the challenge. I’m sure you’ve heard me mention that if you run the Frederick Half Marathon, Baltimore 10-Miler, and the Baltimore Half Marathon you are a Maryland Double finisher and King Crab Challenge Finisher. Essentially you get an extra medal for completing both half marathons and a super sweet backpack for doing all 3 races. What can I say… I love a challenge and schwag.
I’m looking forward to this race, I know what to expect, I’m familiar with course, the weather is supposed to be beautiful and this year I don’t have an upper respiratory infection. Baltimore is a very hilly course so I plan on having a great time and taking it all in.
Are you running a race this weekend? Have you ever completed a multi-race challenge? Could Friends BE a better show? Are you running Baltimore?
