26.2 miles or 42.2 KM
I haven't yet completed any of my half marathons that I am signed up to do and am already itching to do a full. I did some research and there are two in the fall near where I live. One is in the Islands (October 16th) and the other is in Montreal (September 25th). Both marathons you receive a medal (yes, that is highly important!) The Montreal one costs $80 dollars (canadian) and the South Hero one costs $30. So huge price difference. $50 dollars is a lot. That is $50 dollars that could go towards another marathon. DUH! I am leaning towards the Island one due to how much closer it is to where I live. 30 mins compared to 2hrs driving. Being so close garantees more crowd support. Can anyone say Hi mom and dad? The Island marathon is a little boring. It is an out and back course but it along the lake and on dirt roads etc. I am sure it will be beautiful regardless and honestly, I will be dying so really do I need to have beautiful things to look at while I die? Nope! Although, adding international runner to my resume is tempting....Good thing I have MONTHS to think about this huge dilema! Who knows, I might go crazy and do both!
