Baltimore was awesome!! Yes, some runners complain about the hills, but the hills could be much worse. The first few miles are hilly/challenging, and some hilly miles towards the end, but it's not anything a marathoner can't tackle.
I loved the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore. There were so many neat shops and places to eat along with street performers. I really enjoyed the spectators along the marathon course. They had a lot of Baltimore Pride especially after all of the riots this year (2015).
My friend Jessie and I and Jessie's sister, Liana, stayed in Baltimore together. We had a great time exploring, eating, and drinking our way through Baltimore.
And...that's a wrap for 2015! Have a great holiday season everyone and I'll be back with marathon fun in 2016!

|Back to Boston!|
|Returning to Boston!|
I traveled to Milwaukee and drove with Cheryl B. a 50 Stater to Appleton (thank you Cheryl)! I stayed with my 50 State Club/Marathon Maniac friends Alison, Lisa, and Ed in a small and adorable house in Menasha, close to the marathon finish line.
I was very concerned about finishing this marathon because of some medical issues, but I was able to complete it despite being sick during the marathon. This marathon taught me more about myself and my strength. I was extremely happy to finish.
The course had many wonderful volunteers and was very well organized. The finish was beautiful in a park along Lake Winnebago in Menasha, WI.
Thank you everyone for your continued support. I am heading to Baltimore next!
