Eau Claire Marathon is Coming Up!

That's right folks, this Sunday May 1st is the Eau Claire Marathon and Half Marathon.  I did it last year and I have to say that it's a pretty awesome event.  The course kicked my butt...not because it was all that difficult but because I wasn't in great shape.

More and more I'm starting to like these "little" marathons.  This isn't the massive battle that something like Grandma's is.  Although I enjoy the spectacle of things like Grandma's and the Birkie, let's face it, those races are a logistical nightmare.  For something like the Eau Claire marathon you can just show up, race and go home.

Eau Claire is a good sized event though because it's not so big to make just getting there a problem, but it's not so small that you have to worry about aid stations not being manned.  This race is very professional and very well organized.

All that being said, I'm not going to run it this year (I haven't been running), but if you're in the area, let me know...I know where the best beer joints in EC are!
