The GO! St Louis road Marathon is my third event of the year and takes place this coming Sunday morning (04/12/2015) in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. The course is essentially four out and backs run entirely on road, crossing the Mississippi River for a few brief miles in Illinois before crossing back into and finishing in Missouri.
This is a part of a bigger race weekend as I’m flying into St Louis on Thursday to meet up with a friend, we’re driving 8 hours north to Minnesota for the Zumbro “Midnight” 50 on Friday night/Saturday morning, hopefully finishing up the race around noon, driving 8 hours back to St Louis by Saturday night, (hopefully) running the Go! St Louis road Marathon on Sunday morning, then flying back to Seattle on Monday. Typing that out now seems a little crazy, but it’s all a part of my grand master plan for Mohican 100 in two months and Squamish 50m/50k weekend in four months.
