Official Blogger For The Cleveland Marathon…Again :)

If we are Facebook friends you saw it there first, and then I tweeted it and now in all officiality (yep made that word up) I am blogging about it. I was chosen to be an official blogger for the Cleveland Marathon…..again!! My guess is they asked me to do it again due to all my crazy pictures, excessive pictures (some people are too busy running to actually read, right?), excessive use of exclamations and love of the Cleveland Marathon. There are a couple different bloggers this year so don’t forget to check them all out. Some blogged for the marathon last year and some are new, but all are awesome and you can check them out here.

New Blogger Badge!

 You might think I am really lazy by leaving the 2011 badge up but I really like it and am not ready to take it down. Blog Badge Hoarder, new trend in 2012 I swear.

I have been running the Cleveland Marathon races every year since 2008 and I don’t see myself ever not running it. I have been known to skip bachelorette parties, leave weddings/birthday parties/family events early, and plan vacations around The Cleveland Marathon. (I really hope those people don’t read this blog…pretty sure they do). This year I am running the full marathon again and have a big PR in mind, I will blog about that later 🙂

If you are looking for a good reason to run the Cleveland Marathon this year how about because it is on the top 12 Endurance Events to do in 2012, or how about because I am on some of their ads this year (#thelogo) or how about because if you register early you save money and get a head start on your training! Marathoners, if you register before January 6th you get a free early bird gift!

  1. Jess: Congrats again for being chosen as an official blogger for Cleveland marathon! I def plan on running the half but might move up to the full depending on how well my training goes. I follow both you and CLEmarathon on Twitter and like them on Facebook!

    Happy Holidays!

  2. PLEASE GIVE ME A REASON TO COME BACK TO OHIO! Cle was my first half in ’09 and my first full in ’10… would l-o-v-e to run the full again (I need redemption!) Plus it’s 4 days before my birthday AND I’ll already be in mary-shape from Ragnar.

    … and my mom will bake you cookies if I “have” to come home in May 🙂

  3. i did the 1/2 last year, but after running the marathon in hawaii, i have the itch to do another one. would love to run in my hometown 🙂

  4. I’m up for the half marathon.

    I’m already following you (how else would I’ve found this 🙂 ), following Cleveland Marathon on Twittter, liked their page and I tweeted.


  5. I ran the half last year and plan on the full this year. I follow you & CLEmarathon on twitter and also Cleveland marathon on FB. Gonna shout out a sweet tweet now!

  6. I am hoping to complete my first 1) FULL marathon at the 2012 Cleveland Marathon (just a few days after my 30th birthday)! I already follow both 2) @MojaMala2 and 3) @clevemarathon on Twitter. I have also 4) tweeted about the giveaway.

  7. Set my marathon PR in Cleveland last year, so I guess I should try to break it again in 2012. Count me in for the full marathon.

  8. Oooh, pick me! I would like to do the full in Cleveland. I did it last year – loved the course, hated the weather, so I am looking for redemption!

  9. Want to run the marathon as a post-Boston fun run! Hubby has been sidelined by injury and this is his goal race. I would really like to run with him and cheer him on (and I really really need the entry since I will be broke after Boston!)

  10. I want to run the half this year – because I am not crazy about training for a marathon AND planning a wedding AND coaching lacrosse. Plus I absolutely HATED the second half of the course…yep, I’m conceding that the west side is the best side on this one.

  11. I want to run the marathon again this year! I follow your blog and like the Cleveland marathon on FB. This will be my 22nd year for running Cleveland, one distance or another and I’ve paid every other year, so a free entry will be great! — Joe
