Liked best? The whole experience of international running..........learning so much about another culture and being able to see another part of the world through running
The convenience. We just had to show up and everything was done. Probably the best pre-race pasta dinner that I have had - other than when we booked ourselves a restaurant meal. Staff was very friendly, shuttle to the expo worked out very well, and getting driven to the start line was wonderful.
A world major marathon trip organized by world class runners for runners who are trying to run the world. :)
NYC Marathon is one the Marathon Majors. The race is difficult to get us both in at the same time. Marathon Tours offered the guaranteed entries.
First, I must commend you AGAIN for the accommodations I booked through Marathon Tours. I've used Marathon tours for many of my hotel accommodations during marathons. Most recently, I coordinated my stay at the Omni Parkerhouse Hotel with you when I attended the Boston Marathon on April 20.
Oh Jen, Jen, Jen… I am sending you a TREMENDOUS THANK YOU because our trip was beyond fabulous! Next time can you please do something about the humidity on race day though!
If you had to do one marathon then hook up with Marathon Tours, put on your seatbelt and have some fun in Bordeaux!
It was the best blend of fun and wine and running I could ever have hoped for, and I want to do it again!
Cape Town and the Commodore Hotel was very nice. The staff was pleasant and the location excellent as it was only blocks to the V & A Waterfront, the shops and restaurants. I was able to walk there by myself in the dark, something I couldn't do in Durban. The tour company was excellent and early for the pickups at the hotel. The full day tour of the Cape was excellent and well worth it, even though we had a lot of distance to travel. It was a good way to see the suburbs of Cape Town. I would recommend it.
