Hey, just a heads up to everyone:  I checked out hotels and the prices are good.  The Doubletree is offering $189/night for a big two room suite.  I went ahead and reserved just to be on the safe side.  Seems like there are lots of good options downtown and that everything is pretty accessible thanks to the People Mover (don't know exactly what that is, but it I like the sound of it!).



ohhh Disney foretold of those!

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

Thanks Leon for the heads-up on early registration. I am officially entered for the International Half. The US-only Half was tempting because it would be nice to run inside Belle Isle for a change without being pooped out. I've run the Detroit Marathon twice and Belle Isle was always at the end.

I hope a lot of our LVM group is able to make it to Detroit. I might have to miss Las Vegas for the first time. November is a ratings period for those of us in the TV biz, and no vacation time is allowed.

Sorry to here about the Nov. ratings period and the no vacation. Sounds like it's time to retire. :)

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

Now that first hill on the elevation profile is not as extreme as it looks right? It is just 100ft in 1.5-2 miles? Looks like two climbs about the same..... Now when we go into Canada do we stop and get our passport stamp (please say yes LOL is what I am thinking!)

The hills would be the bridge to Canada and then the tunnel to the US on the way back. They are not insignificant, but they are early in the race so as long as you don't get overaggressive you'll be fine.

Not sure about the passport check but those Canadians do frisk you. :)

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

I signed up for the full. That's a great price for the marathon, the hotels - not so much.

As far as the border crossing goes - don't take any pictures, especially when wearing an Elvis costume. You will get stopped.


Upcoming Races
Las Vegas Full/Half Marathon, Nov 16th
Gilbert Half Marathon, Nov 22nd
Fiesta Bowl Half Marathon, Dec 14th
PF Chang's Marathon, Jan 18th
