I'm running in the Space Coast Marathon!

Postby Dren » Fri May 29, 2015 2:37 pm

What better race to run in as my first ever marathon! The race is held within the shadow of the Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa, FL on November 29th. The entire event revolves around a space theme sure to delight and energize of the participants. This marathon has unique features like

-Custom “Space Shuttle” Medal and a “Space” Certificate to recognize and commemorate your accomplishment
-Start your race to the roar of a Space Shuttle countdown and liftoff on the Jumbotron
-“Space” Props along course and at finish line area
-“Space” Themed Water/Aid Stations all along course
-Volunteers in NASA-like uniforms and hats
-“Space" Photo opportunity with astronauts walking around the race site
-Opportunity to win a “One Day Space Adventure” for up to a family of four!

Here is the medal design that you get for completing it.

Nervous because I've never ran in a marathon before, but I have about 180 days to train to get ready. Getting in 2 marathons before the release of Star Citizen was one of my short term life goals. After which, all I need to do is become a full time Web Developer before the end of this year to complete my checklist. :)

Good luck and have fun with the marathons! I'm afraid I won't be joining you as the only running I do is "running late" and even that tires me out.

Good luck! and do train up; also make sure you get a decent pair of running shoes. Bad footwear is awful.

Good luck with the run.

Running.... I've heard of that. I always thought it was an urban legend though...

Somehow I missed this post, Dren.

That sounds like an awesome time even though there's that evil thing involved. You know which one I mean... Oh fine I'll say it!

EXERCISE.

Happy now?



Playing aside; I hope you have a great time with this. I'd do it if I were anywhere near the location of the marathon, although I'd do it at a steady walk... Just so I didn't miss anything from running so... fast. Yeah, because I run super fast.

Going pretty well! Thanks for asking!

Running isn't so bad, especially when you're zoned out and day dreaming for most of it :D
