was my fifth
and final piece in completing the
World Marathon Majors
in 2008, the set is complete.
The idea was born after
having run Chicago
qualifying for Boston
and winning a
New York lottery entry.
With friends to visit in New York, London and Berlin, it became feasible.
It's been a great experience to run these famous courses in front of large crowds.
Conditions ranged from cold, windy and rainy in
way too hot in
had mixed conditions including a solid rain shower in
and were just perfect in both
New York and
The crowds were awesome in all five places. All in all, these races were a blast -- if you're into long-distance running,
give each or all of them a shot.
