LACE UP THOSE SHOES!!! STRETCH THOSE LEGS!!! READY! GO!!!!
Hey all you athletes out there! Are your ready to run a marathon? No!? Then how about a half marathon?? Come on, now it is not that bad! Coming in little over a week Lake Placid is the place to be for such a race. RICH YOUR SPORTSCASTER just back from my training run of 10 miles (phew hot one out there today) and I feel little tired but great. Hold on let me grab a drink. AHHH!! Thats better. Okay, so as I was saying Lake Placid is the stop to be to watch some great athletes run their hearts out and feel a sense of accomplishment.
Lake Placid and the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort is the host for the 2011 LAKE PLACID MARATHON. That is right! Lake Placid has their very own marathon that has been taking place for over 6 years now. Forget the Boston or the NYC Marathon, come on over to the Adirondacks and watch these atheltes run for themselves or some great charities. They will be participating in a full marathon of 26 miles or half marathon of 13.1 miles and you can cheer them on to the finish. (oh the dreaded hills at the end of the race before the finish) The race will be taking place this coming Sunday June 12th from the start of the race at 8AM until the finish by 2PM. Many sports and runners magazines have rated the Lake Placid Marathon one of the top and challenging races in the United States. With its many hills and scenic views it is definitely a fun and exhilirating race. This will be my first year participating and just looking to finish this great race.
As you can see, we have a sporty quaint village that has some of the top rated races in the US. Stop into the Golden Arrow in the next few weeks and check out the great view we have of the lake and who knows you may be back next year to participate in the race! Well, time for me to hit the showers. Feeling a little tired after the run. Hope for sunny weather for race day and everyone have a great week!!!
