    I wish. Running TWO CITIES in Fresno instead -- not quite the same thrill, but the same distance.icon_razz.gif
    Good luck, Jesse.

    Yeah, I did it. I'd never done New York before, so it was incredible. Turning in to Central Park with that throng of people cheering you on was pretty inspiring.
    Hope it went well for you, as well, TriGuy.

    What do you mean not the same thrillicon_question.gif Small and medium sized cities can be just as exciting for marathon runs as any big, expensive, coastal burg.

    Rob,
    About half my marathons over the last decade have been small ones -- max 200-300, to as few as 12, many on trail. It's a different experience from a race with 50K runners in an iconic location. All good. Most beautiful lately was Big Sur Trail [held in the fall, NOT the more populous road race in April]. Also try Death Valley, Titus Canyon -- stunning course.
