Checking out the Marine Corps Marathon website just now, I noticed that you can still register for the October 29th race. What a surprise!
In 2005, the 30,000 MCM slots were filled in just 62 hours and 19 minutes. And this year? We’re totally slacking! Five days after the registration started, there are still over 1,000 slots open.
What is it Washington, DC? Are you scared of the MCM size – it is the 5th largest US Marathon and 8th in the world. Or maybe the lack of cash – it is largest marathon in the world that doesn’t offer prize money. Ah, I know – you’ve learned you bleeding nipple lessons and realized that triathlons are better.
Here’s a heads-up then: Coming this fall, the Nation’s Triathlon in Washington DC!
