Fist Pump Friday: I Love You Like A Blogger Roundup – 10/20

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!

    Good luck! I’ve run 15 marathons mostly in my 50’s and still run though I’m not going quite that far now. I didn’t love running them but the road trips with fellow runners were fun and the memories were priceless. Break a leg! Merde, etc.

      Thanks, Steveark! I’m not sure if I’ll ever get to 15 marathons…..I think I may have gotten it out of my system. I still love running, but man…..26.2 seems to get harder every time.

    Have fun this weekend, Travis! My only suggestion on the hotel would be to try booking one a little further out, (20-30 minutes away) but sometimes that doesn’t help, either. Then you have to decide whether the savings is worth the extra time in travel.

      Thanks Sassy Mamaw! I think I even wrote a post once about getting a better rate a bit further away from the event. In this case, the city is smallish, and 30 miles away is about 1/3rd of the way home. 🙂 Great to hear from you!
