I signed up for the Houston Marathon!

What: The Chevron Houston Marathon

Where: Houston, TX

When: January 17, 2016

I’m so excited to announce that I will be running my second marathon on January 17, 2016!

Official training will begin in September and I am looking forward to sharing my journey to 26.2 miles with all of you.

Why Houston, you ask?

It has 2 qualities that I love in a race: fast and flat.

Houston has a marathon field of 13,500 (up from last year) so not quite as big as Boston or Chicago yet brags of the big city marathon feel that I thrive on.  Fans line the course the whole way and the average Houston race temperature is in the 50s.  Beautiful!

Plus I have family in Houston!  And the only thing better than a post-marathon deep dish pizza would be a giant burrito!

Check out the Chevron Houston Marathon website for more information.  If you would like to join me in Houston, I'd love to see some of your smiling faces out along the course.  Open registration for both the marathon and half marathon begins on National Running Day—June 3, 2015.
