Top reasons to run the Nike Woman’s Marathon

Nike Woman’s Marathon

Next on the docket for a “big” marathon is a goal that I have had for a few years to run the Nike Woman’s marathon. I went to the site to check out registration, knowing these runs that are so popular sell out – – and I was correct. They did a lottery for a week – 22,000 ppl would be selected. I entered before we left for BC and am happy to report that I got in! So we are celebrating our first wedding anniversary (Oct 20) in San Fransisco. I will bring my wedding dress for dinner and Steve is bringing his tux! The race will be great, maybe I will wear white and run with a pseudo veil – and he can marry me all over again! I love to plan this stuff….

See below the benefits and my reason to pick this marathon to run in the fall!

Whooo Hoooo – – ok – now back to getting ready for Boston. : )


1. 2008 Nike Women’s Marathon is sold out! And I got in!
2. A beautiful race. A noble cause. A weekend to remember.
3. The on-course chocolate mile

5.Every last detail has been planned with a woman in mind.

7. Treats along the trail.
8.Pedi-care station to pamper yourself mid-race.
