Run, Columbus, Run!

These shoes are ready to hit the pavement on Sunday, Oct. 16th for the Columbus Marathon!

You are familiar with Boston, you know New York, but have you heard that Columbus has its own marathon and half marathon?  I am not a runner (at all), but even I can appreciate a large and important event for the city.  Besides, finishing 26.2 miles is not an easy feat; I’m not certain that  I know what 26.2 miles looks like.  This year marks the 32nd Anniversary of the Columbus Marathon sponsored by Nationwide Insurance (headquartered in Columbus ).

A few of my colleagues from the office have trained rigorously for this race and I wish them the best in this endeavor.   Good luck to all racers; run, Columbus, run!

    Something else to note – the Columbus marathon is a “qualifying” race for people trying to get into the Boston marathon. Because of the relatively flat terrain, this is a popular marathon for people looking to qualify for the famous Boston marathon!
