#3082

That is right folks I have now gone over to the dark side, the crazy side, well the maniacal side.  I have submitted my races and been accepted to the Marathon Maniacs.  Meet Maniac #3082.  I sadly only qualify for the level second from the bottom: Silver.  It took 8 marathons/ultras in 365 days to get that but, as always I have my eyes set on higher levels already.  Anyone know where I can run 3 marathons in 2 days (that will move me right on up)?  And no 100 mile races don't count for anything but one single marathon in this crazy a$$ club. lol.  So seriously if anyone knows where I can find 3 marathons located close together at varying times of the day within one weekend, please let me know. 

I know what you are thinking...Did Tara really need something to make her even more crazy?  Some other running related goal that would drive her to run even more?  And well...while  the sane person might say: NO.  I did just get into a club that has Maniac in the title, so clearly I am not sane.  Thus, the answer for me is: YES.  Wooot wooot.  I am now in a group with a bunch of other nut jobs who love to run arguably more than I do.  This is AWESOME!!!

On that note: Happy Running everyone.  Hope your week of training is going well.

I'm not surprised at all!

And while I don't know of a 3 races/2 days in my area, if you come across one in the Philly/Baltimore/Delaware area, I personally with chauffeur you to all three!

Once the new MARA 2011 race schedule comes out I will check to see if there are any back to back marathons in the area. You are Awesome Tara, and 100 should count as more than 1!

Lake Tahoe Marathon in September - they have the Tahoe Triple Marathon version, which is 3 marathons in 3 days, on 3 different courses so that I think you end up circling the entire lake.
