Ummm... Alright.

In my extensive research of trying to pick a Goal Race for this fall, I came across this review of the Des Moines Marathon on October 21...

...
 
Obvs, Des Moines is on the short list now. Just to see what the hell all this is about.

Also, notice at the end of the review, the reviewer claims that Des Moines is "easily one of the best marathons in the country." This from someone who has supposedly ran 50+ previous marathons. You know what that means? This guy musta PRed the SHIT out of this course that day. Nobody would otherwise think Des Moines is one of the best marathons in the country. Methinks this is a good sign.

I like it! There are a few races on my must-do list in Iowa (Bix 7, etc.), but no marathons, so based on your review (b/c you'll PR the shit out it), I may have to add it to my list!

I was supposed to do this one as my fall marathon but it fell through as I have to work a wedding the night before.

Come to Columbus on 10/21 with us. It's a 50 foot net elevation - one itsy bitsy hill. And, it is usually cold there that time of year...and it's a 6 hour drive.

We (myself and my friend Abigail) are going to nail a sub 4. Happy to have you tag along!
