Register Now: Condura Skyway Marathon Run for a Hero

Monday, 18 August 2014  |  Race Announcements

CONDURA-LOGO

Condura Skyway Marathon Run for a Hero 2015 is now open for registration!  The race will be held on February 1, 2015 at Filinvest City.  They are expecting over 15,000 runners for the race!

Condura didn’t put up a race for 2014, but it seems like they’re more than making up for it with this early registration opening for 2015.  I’m pretty psyched about this race for 3 reasons:  1)  It’s on the same weekend that our TBR Dream Marathoners will be running their longest run, so I’m betting a lot of them will do their 30k at this race (and I’m going to join in on the fun! Woot!), 2) The beneficiary is Hero Foundation, a cause which I am an ambassador of and which all my races also support, and lastly, 3) It’s Condura Skyway Marathon for God’s sake, who doesn’t join this run?!

Road to Chicago: The Hanson’s Marathon Program

9 Weeks to Chicago Marathon!

Most of you know that I’ve been training for Chicago Marathon on October 12.  Chicago Marathon will be my 11th marathon and my 5th World Marathon Major (I don’t think I’ll ever do Boston…sigh!) yet I’m excited about it as if it was my first.

This will be the first marathon where I’ll be using the Hanson’s Marathon Program.  I availed of The Classic Hanson’s Beginners Marathon Program online through Hanson’s Running.  With the program comes online supervision by a Hanson’s coach.  My coach is Coach Melissa Johnson-White who is a member of the Brooks-Hansons Distance Project (how cool is that?!) and, oh, by the way, she has a marathon PR of 2:32. Gulp. (more…)
