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?
See you at Baltimore!!
Good Luck! See you there!
So happy friends will be on Netflix! Good luck with the challenge. I’ve only run the Baltimore Half and 5K.
Agreed! Thanks! Ooo I’ve heard the 5K is awesome too, but I feel like all Corrigan races are pretty amazing.
I did a multi race “challenge” but it wasn’t really. It was 2 halfs in a summer (last year). I think it would cool/crazy/out of the question to do one of those 4 halfs in a weekend one (there is one around here) or the back to back marathons. I would consider Goofy or something like that, but I would really have to make sure that it was a good idea.
I’ve seen those back-to-back-to-back races, like the dust bowl series? (is that even a thing?) Those look insane! The Goofy Challenge looks like a lot of fun. It I ever do Walt Disney World Marathon, I may have to make it the Goofy Challenge. 🙂
YOU GO GIRL!!!!!
