To date I have completed 14 marathons in 14 different states. I have yet to repeat any full 26.2 mile marathons, this was going to change in January when I run the Walt Disney World Marathon for the 2nd time as part of the Dopey Challenge. (Be sure to check out my recap of the 2013 WDW Marathon here.)
However, after much consideration I made a decision to schedule a marathon in December and I changed my entry from the St. Jude Memphis Half Marathon to the full! This will be my 15th marathon, the first repeat marathon that I have run, and my 6th marathon of the year. The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Memphis Marathon weekend has become one of my favorite events to look forward to each year. I ran the full marathon in 2012 and was scheduled to run the half in 2013 before the event was cancelled the night before the race. You can read all about “The Race that Wasn’t” here. I am excited to be tackling another marathon to end my year on and even more excited that it can be part of my ongoing efforts to raise funds to benefit St. Jude.
