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.



Woohoo - the party is getting bigger!


Slowpole events into the future:

Marathons: Mardi Gras 2/24/13, Colorado 5/13/13?, LVM 11/17/13

Tri's:  Leon's World Fastest Tri Olympic 6/2/13?, Beach 2 Battleship Ironman 10/26/13

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. :)


Whitney...just remember to keep all your layers on until a few miles after the tunnel. Many runners heat up in there and start peeling off the clothes, only to regret it later!

Passports are checked at the packet pick up but like Leon said, can't rule out the frisky Canadians ;)

Sounds like it's a good turn out for the race! Can't wait!

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

So I called the Doubletree on W. Lafayette and the woman had no idea what I was talking about regarding a discount. So I went via website, and the Doubletree is booked!! UGH!!

Therefore, party at the Holiday Inn Express. I may not run faster, but I will definitely run smarter! Unless I get the remedial room :(

Bet you can't get a Big Boy at the wedding. Change your mind yet?

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

If I plan on going to Vegas this year in November I'll have to pass on Detroit in October as I simply cannot afford to do both so close together. Most likely I'll be in Vegas....Hope to see you all there.

RE: Detroit Marathon 2013

I am in! Getting in late on Friday and flying out on Monday. Are you running the full? Maybe we could meet after the race? Not sure who else is still coming. I know that Karen is out. Hopefully some others are still coming. I miss our group.....
