My Take: The 2019 Big Beach Marathon


As this post/episode is released, I’m a week out from running the Big Beach Marathon in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

I’m not one for writing a detailed race recap of my performance on race day. So if that’s what you’re looking for…

Sorry

Yeah, I’m not really that sorry.

What I am up for doing is sharing my perspective on the Big Beach Marathon as someone that has run the race.

What things does this race get right? Where could they improve?

So that’s what I’m doing today.

I’m giving the basics below, but the podcast will have much more detail (ie I’ll probably be rambling like a mofo). So if you want the full scoop, make sure you press play above!

I'm Just Sad

An Open Letter to runDisney: Why Did You Ruin Wine & Dine?

Dear runDisney,

Why?
