The San Francisco Marathon

San Francisco peeps, don’t feel left out because aside from the witty marathon that is Light at the end of the <del>tunnel</del> marathon, the local San Francisco Marathon will also be taking place on July 25th.

I need not tell you that The SF Marathon has to be one of the few marathon websites that I’ve come across that just gets how important a neat website is. Upon landing on the home page, you’ll see that they have 4 kinds of marathon that’s geared for everyone, there’s a full marathon, 2 half marathons, 5K/Progressive marathon and munchkin kids run.

They’re still open for registration, so stop being lazy and click that link. 🙂


The Light at the End of the Tunnel Marathon 2010

I love witty titles, imagine my delight when I came across the name of this marathon! The Light at the end of the <del>Tunnel</del> Marathon is set for the 25th of July, 2010 at North Bend Washington. It’s a shame because registration is already closed (they’re looking for volunteers, though), but hey! There’s always next year, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel! 😛

Race starts at 7 to 8 in the morning, just because you can’t participate in the race doesn’t mean you can’t watch!
