Marathon weekend is here! We’re headed out of town tomorrow and staying overnight in a hotel for my marathon on Sunday morning. I know they did this in larger cities for major marathons, but I was surprised to find out hotels jack up their rates even in smaller cities for races that attract a fraction of the amount of runners as the bigger races. We’re paying at least twice the normal price for our room, but it’s either that, or get up 2 hours earlier on Marathon morning and drive there! When was the last time you encountered higher hotel rates due to event pricing?
Now, get your fists in the air for Marathon Weekend! Wish me luck!
