Mayor's Marathon pre-registration

Midnight tomorrow, Alaska time, is the last day to save big-time on pre-registration for the Mayor's Marathon in Anchorage June 18.

Here's the dude who won both the Mayor's and the Humpy's marathons last year, Erik Johnson. And he lives in Seward!

I see this dude out running in every kind of weather, putting in mega miles along the highway (cars splashing him with snow and mud) as I drive to the trailhead to run my very much shorter distances on the beautiful and peaceful trails. Which is why he's winning marathons and I'm finishing so-so in half-marathons, sigh, sigh.

But back to the Mayor's Marathon: The course includes about 8 miles of mild trails plus a killer hill at the end. Yours truly will be running the half, since I'm hoping to tackle the Shiprock Marathon in AZ May 1 and the Humpy's Marathon in August.
