  1. I don’t see New York. You should come do Wineglass in my home town, Corning NY. So well run! and respected.

    1. Funny you should mention that, Shannon! That is going to be my New York race, but I will be doing it in 2014. Oddly enough, my aunt, uncle, and cousin live in Horseheads, so it was a no-brainer for me. I’m excited because I’ve heard such great things about it AND I’ll get to see my family! Happy bonus. And now I’ll get to see you too!

  2. I know you’re REAL busy and important but I think it’s a real travesty that the original Crab Run doesn’t have a race report

    1. To be fair, it would mostly just say “and then the race van drove by again and asked if they could pick us up yet.”

    1. I’ve heard that’s a good one, but I’ll probably be doing Lost Dutchman over near Phoenix instead. My brother lives really close to the race so it’s a good excuse to go visit him 🙂

  3. You need some sort of ticker/map so we can have a quick look at your 51 race progress. And you’ve run 36 marathons since Oct ’11 – that’s amazing. I want to hear all about your training, and recovery. I guess I have a lot of reading to do. And how do you afford it? And the travel? And the time off work? I’m just jealous. Keep it up!

    1. You’re right, I do! I’ll get my boyfriend to work on all of that. He is much better at computers than me. If you’d like to know more about how I manage to do all this, email me at thetrexrunner@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to tell you. I feel like it would be an excessive amount to write in a blog comment 🙂

  4. So, I am looking for a SC marathon to run, what would you rate as your favorite? I have seen your reports on Kiawah, Mrytle Beach (twice) & Columbia. Any opinion on what’s the best one (including factoring in best location to spend the weekend)?

    Also, Wineglass & Lost Dutchman are really good choices, the beginning of the Lost Dutchman up on the mountain is just a great experience.

    1. Well, Columbia does not exist at this point, so my vote would be for Kiawah. It’s a really beautiful race and a great place to relax if you’re looking for a nice weekend at the beach. If you’re wanting to see Charleston, it’s pretty close to that too, since that is the airport you’d fly into. It’s also completely flat 🙂

    1. I’m thinking about it! The only problem is October is such a busy month for marathons that I really try not to do races during that month if I have other options for the state. I HAVE heard great things about it, though!

  5. Hey T-Rex! I was supposed to do my first marathon on Dec 8th, but I won’t be able to go because of an injury… periostitis. Do you have any posts on spectating, I want to go cheer for everyone since I really want to be at the race 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for sharing! This is great! I am going to attempt to figure out how to use it…I am not so computer savvy.

  6. For your Arizona stop you should run either the PF Changs Rock and Roll marathon, Whiskey Row Marathon (named one of the hardest marathons in the states), sedona marathon (beautiful city!) or Lost Dutchman. Just saying:-)

  7. Today is the 2nd to last day of my vacation before i return to work as a police officer. It also happens to be the day that I stumbled across your blog. Consequently I have spent the entirety of this precious day of freedom reading your race recaps, your posts in the ED series, and a plethora of random entries. And I am SO HAPPY I did. You, my friend/person I never met and probably never will meet, have inspired me. My most recent goal in this life is to run a full marathon before I turn 30. Just one. I have 1 year and roughly 9 months to accomplish that goal. This goal was set last year after I finished my first half marathon and I promptly did nothing towards accomplishing said goal. That changed today. So thanks, T-Rex Runner, for being my goddamn inspiration.

    1. Kate, your comment made my day! I am sorry it has taken me so long to respond – I’ve been slacking on the blog front recently. I am so thrilled to be your goddamn inspiration and will be even more thrilled if we ever do have the opportunity to me – at your first full marathon perhaps? You can do it!! Please keep me posted.
