Where in the World are You Marathoning this Weekend?

So where are you headed to get your marathon fix this coming weekend, December 3 & 4, 2011?

I’m going off to Sacramento for the California International Marathon. One of the top six fastest courses in the US. Negative elevation, baby!

I have friends, couple Macel & Mike and friends, Francis and Andy (all TBR Dream Alumni, by the way) all set for the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon.

I hear some runners have signed up for the Macau Galaxy Entertainment International Marathon.  This was my initial goal when I started planning early in the year.  But, Amale Jopson managed to influence me into joining CIM.  Not that I’m so hard to persuade anyway!

Some hardcore triathletes friends, Joey Torres and Guy Concepcion, will be going to Anda, Bohol for the Timex 226 Bohol Triathlon on Saturday where they’ll run their marathon only after a 3.8k swim and 180km bike. Okay, I think I just broke a sweat typing that out.

Last but not the least, I know a whole lot of runners will be joining our very own Quezon City International Marathon, a race that I will always remember fondly for being my first ever unofficial marathon.

Well, whatever marathon you’ll be doing this Sunday, or even if you’re running a shorter distance, I get the sense that it’s going to be one great weekend for a lot of us runners.  Don’t you think so?
