What makes a destination fitting for a marathon?
The course, the attractions and amenities, the post-race party and activities. I also always ask ‘can I take my family?’ and if I do, will they have something to do before, during and after the race.
What about the Mississippi Gulf Coast will make it a good spot for a marathon?
The course, ample hotels and amenities and the community embrace.
How do you get amped for a marathon?
I feed off of the crowd. I also like some good music and black coffee or red bull pre-race.
