Like many of you this is the time of year where I start reflecting on the year of running and start thinking about what next for 2013. Taking on different challenges and looking at something different is my plan for next year.
The Weather Channel recently posted 15 of the World's Toughest Marathons I read through these thinking WOW!! Then a few other people and Tweeple kept mentioning Blue Ridge Marathon. I was beyond intrigued about this bad boy.
*Referred to as "America's Toughest Road Marathon"
*The full marathon course has over 7,234' of elevation change. There are three mountains to ascend, and descend. Most runners state it's the downhill running that cruses them.
*The first climb begins around mile one and finishes just after mile seven, after two miles of 12-17% grade. You then have two miles straight down on the same 12-17% grade.
*April 20, 2013
