Hmm another Marathon?
“Disclaimer: I received entry into the Madison Marathon to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!”
Ok, so I am registered for the Madison Marathon in Madision, WI on November 12th. WHY? Well, the Hawkeyes will be playing at Camp Randall the day before, so it’s just good sense to run the race the next day.
However, I am having second thoughts on running the full marathon. I am capable of this, yes. Do I want to do it, no. My heart just isn’t in running another marathon, a month after the Detroit Marathon.
I am also not a stranger to this event. I ran the full last year as part of the Conquer the Capital Challenge. I was also running a marathon a month, and I was tired in November.
So, now what? I have never not done something I said I was going to do. Yep, that’s me, I say I am going to do something and you can rest assured I will be doing it. Is this different though? Since I am not feeling the full distance, and I would be doing the smart thing by switching to the half?
First, I had to find out it this is possible, does the race allow me to switch?
Luckily there is a wonderful FAQ page – http://www.madisonmarathon.org/full-marathon/ That answered this question:
- Online changes are allowed until Oct 23, or until a race has reached its maximum capacity.
- There are no additional fees associated with online changes before Oct 23rd, unless the race distance you are changing to costs more than your original registration fee.
- Changes after Oct 23 must be done on-site, at Expo & Packet Pick Up, for an additional $10 fee. When making changes to your registration at the Expo & Packet Pick Up, your shirt size is not guaranteed.Please pick up your original packet, then visit the Troubleshooting booth.
I started the process to do this, while it was an easy walk through, I was having some issues.
Finally after some emails, I am now running the half marathon!! Whew, life happens and sometimes you just need to do what is best for you.
Who else is traveling to Madison for the game and wants to run a race? Use code RAVE10 which is good for $10 off Madison Marathon or Half Marathon
Codes will expire Nov 8 at 11:59PM (close of online registration) http://www.madisonmarathon.org/
