This weekend I’m going to try something new by running the New Hampshire Marathon on Saturday and the Maine Marathon on Sunday.
I’ve never done this before, but I feel that I’m in good enough shape for a pair of sub-3 hour marathons.
New Hampshire will be a new race for me that I’ve never run before, but the Maine Marathon was the second one that I ever ran (back in 2003) and remains my second slowest marathon to date at 3:18:23 (not counting splits during my ultramarathons.)
Here’s a quick preview about how I’m planning on approaching the weekend:
Have you ever done a back to back marathon before? If so, leave a comment below and let me know what your experiences were like. And if you have any advice for me, then I’m all ears. I’d love to hear it.
