I have not yet finished blogging my different marathons. I need to get on it since I have another one coming up next week. I love when I get comments and emails from you saying that the posts have helped you decide which runs to do. I just love hearing from you all.
I have now done 13 marathons and I know I say that each were my favorite, but this one was really unique. On December 21, 2012 I did, “The End of The World Marathon” and then the following day I did, “The Day After The End of The World Marathon.” The races took place in Humble, Tx. There was not much that was special about the location. It was basically a plowed field with course markers. But what made it awesome was the husband and wife team that put it together. They were amazing. I would do any race this couple put on. Here are a few of the course markers that were put out.

Not too many places do you get to run by where they are drilling for oil.
Most runners will admit that we are in it for the bling. This race not only had the bling but it had great swag. For each day we got a duffle bag, a shirt, a hat, a medal and a squeeze toy. The toy is just something this group likes to do. One was a Easter Island head and the other was a smiley face.

And a coin for doing both days.
