Wow, those three weeks rolled by at warp speed....is it already time for another marathon? Actually, yes! Marathon Dos takes me to sunny Seville, Spain.
What can I tell you about this race? Sunday, the 19th, is race day with a not-so-early 9:30 AM start. Temps at the race start should be 36 F with an expected temperature of 68 F at the finish line. An impressive start and finish at the Seville Olympic Stadium, with a winding urban circuit route.
This weekend's road crew consists of the Budman! Thanks, sweetheart!
Bags are packed, running gear collected, and boarding passes in hand. A couple of logistical challenges did surface in simply getting to Seville: (1) no direct flight from LHR, so flying to Madrid, and then on to Seville, which is about 6 hours of travel time, and (2) we narrowly avoided the Iberia pilots strike (thankfully, am flying BA codeshare so my flight was NOT cancelled). I was starting to get a visual of planes, trains, and automobiles. Catastrophe averted.
Catch you on the flip side of 26.2 miles.
