No Light at the End of the Tunnel (Read 16 times)

    Looks like I missed my chance to sign up for that one (already full).

    Can anyone recommend another PR friendly marathon within a few hours drive of Seattle in the July/August time frame?


    I had planned my PR attempt for the Tacoma City marathon.  After a 1:40 at the Lake Sammamish HM I even started to dream about a BQ attempt (3:35 for me).  However, I have recently come down with Achilles tendinosis.  Tried to take just a few days off, but it got even worse when I ran again.  Now in the process of zero running for at least a week - maybe two.  Depending on how long this goes on, I may need to DNS Taco City.  Need to start focusing on something else while I go stir crazy from not running!

      Yeah, it sold out in something like 7 hours!  However, he's offering a Tunnel Lite in September, which I believe will also be a Boston Qualifier. Not a lot of options in July (especially if you want to stay in Washington state), but there's North Olympic in early June and Skagit Flats in early September.

      Upcoming races: 3/28-29 Umstead 100, 4/26 Mt. Si 50, 5/9 Lost Lake 50K, 5/16 Sun Mountain 50,



        Hi, I ended up doing the Tunnel Lite last year.  The course is just as beautiful and the organization is just as awesome.  Some of the aid stations are serve-yourself, but I had a great time!
