>Racing>Wineglass vs Mohawk for a BQ - which would you choose
Many similarities, both high BQ qualifiers. At the end of the day, which would you choose?
Houston Marathon 1-13-13
Rock n Roll St. Pete Half 2-10-13
Gasparilla 15K 2-23-13
Armadillo 10K 3-9-13
Ogden Marathon 5-18-13
The Goal: Boston Marathon 4-20-15
I can speak only for the Mohawk, since I had a PR and my first BQ there. I think somewhere around here I have a race report, but it a nutshell, here are some highlights:
HTFU? Why not!
Mohawk due to it being in my backyard, and it's held in the beginning of October which normally has awesome running weather
I say normally because there have been a few years it's snowed in early October and a few years that it's been in the mid-70's, got to love the Northeast
I've done Wineglass (2010). Weather was perfect, high 30s at start, 50 at finish. Flat, downhill course with two minor hills. The only things I did not like about the race were:
1. Course open to traffic (I'm not a big fan of that in general)
2. Intermittent water stops (I'm used to mega marathons with water stops basically every mile)
3. Lots of turns at the end of the race.
It is a fast course and my fastest non-Boston time....
