MCM is now a lottery marathon, that is you don't automatically get in, just by signing up. However, if you run the Marine Corps 17.75K race (about 11 miles) in April, you get an automatic entry into MCM in October. In other words, pay money to run 11 so you can pay again later to run 26.2! So, I ran the 17.75 with Shethir on April 11, 2014. It was held at the Prince William Forest Park down near Quantico, VA. It was a gorgeous morning, and probably one of the hilliest races I have ever done!

But as the weather got cooler, that work in the summer seemed to be paying off. And here we are, days before the marathon already! I am looking forward to the race expo on Friday and seeing Shethir and some other friends. I am excited for Sunday.
