I am doing the IMG Miami at the end of the month. I want to do the LA marathon in late March but the air fares are very high. This may be something we can discuss on this thread as I have been all over the country including hawaii and always try and get good air fares. I have run marathons in these cities I will use airport codes. CVG, CHM, DAY, CLE, NYC, ATL, BWI,
Vermont City, SFO, LAX, SAN, HNL, MIA, FLL.
I've done both the denver 1/2 (LONG time ago) and the country music half. The country music was a GREAT race.
The Country Music race has been my favorite of them all - I love the route (and it helps that I did undergrad in Nashville and still work there some) and the participation of the residents. I have never had as much local interaction during a race, from people handing out beer and pretzels to bands playing all along the route. It's the only RNR series race that I have really enjoyed.
