Hunting for an international marathon abroad that isn’t too far from home? How about the Guam International Marathon?
I ran in Guam last October 2011 when I participated in the Guam Ko’Ko’ Road Race. Running in Guam was a fantastic experience for me with their wide, open roads and a fantastic view of the sea and the sky; it was very reminiscent of our very own Subic.
