Jake, the marathon (and the half) start in Detroit, go over the Ambassador bridge, around and about Windsor, then back to the U.S. through the tunnel under the Detroit river. It might be the only event to run in two countries. Because of customs, you have to get through the tunnel in like six hours or something, or I guess you're stuck with the Canucks! The finish line is the 50 yard line at Ford Field with your picture live on the big scoreboard screen. Should be interesting! http://www.detroitfreepressmarathon.com/

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
CMM this year was terrible for everybody given the heat and the humidity and the nasty dehydrating winds, and nearly everybody fell apart. It is hard to generalize from that, except that marathons are ALWAYS crap shoots. (Jake, I ran with my friend who was the 4:15 pace group leader to keep her company; we lost nearly 100% of our group by mile 19 with the conditions, but she came in at 4:14:42.)
thanks Scout and a-doodle. I'll probably run with my watch, but try not tolet the 3:35 pacers pass me. Scout, congrats on Baltimore. Did you have a good race? I'd like to run your 3:27!
B. What IS your half marathon PR? How does it compare with your planned marathon in terms of terrain, weather conditions, etc?
C. What marathons have you run before?
