Starting in the heart of the city, downtown Cleveland.
Traveling east to run under the giant chandelier that lights up Playhouse Square.
Weaving through the city to run through Tremont, Ohio City and Gordon Square. (All favorite cheering locations)
Cruising farther west to run to the very end of Lakewood and at the same time running through the best crowd support on the entire course.
Making the turn to head back downtown.
Seeing downtown skyline get closer with every mile.
Crushing the “Shoreway Hills” with some support from the Pep Club Dance Party.
Continuing to put one foot in front of another, as every step brings me closer to downtown and closer to the finish line.
Plowing down the off ramp of the shoreway to see a crowd of people, lining both sides 0f the street. Cheering you on.
Leading the way to the Cleveland Marathon finish line.
Can you tell I am a huge fan of the Cleveland Marathon? How can you not love a race that goes through your hometown!
This year I will be back to run the Cleveland Marathon. Yes, the full marathon. I seriously had so much fun last year running the full. I smiled almost the entire time. For days and weeks after the marathon all I wanted to do was to run the race again.
This year I will once again be a member of the Cleveland Marathon Ambassador program and I have 1 race entry to giveaway! The entry is good for the marathon, half, 10k, 8k or the 5k – just not the challenge series.
