  • Comments: This was my second time running the Myrtle Beach Marathon. It's a great event that is very well organized and well supported by the community. I'd definitely do this race again!

  • Comments: I thought I was good to go ordering a medium women's t-shirt---not so much! Skin tight BEFORE I washed it---afterwards, I'm not sure if it would fit a barbie doll! I do like my snuggly blanket swag we got, though!

  • Comments: It was a well put together race. I would like to see more than 2 food stops and the portajohns were spaced too far apart.

  • Comments: So - it's 24 hours later - what have I learned? - My long training runs - I need to step it up a bit there - sure, I can do a 20 miler - no problem. They need to be run at a better speed though - not always at that "Sunday Drive" pace. - Long Runs - more of them - I had followed a beginners plan for Thunder Road, modified it for MB. I'm definitely ready to step it up - it's not about finishing anymore, it's about getting faster. - Hydration - I didn't do a good job of hydrating in the days before the race. Sure, I was drinking, but not on any specific plan. I need to work on that. - Know your limits - I had a plan - 9 minute miles. I had no business cranking out 8:24 so early in the race - I should know better. This isn't a 5K and I'm not 20 years old. I always laugh at the people that go out too fast - "They're going to regret that later." Ha - the joke was on me. Surprisingly, I feel pretty good today - not nearly as sore as after Thunder Road. Skip this part if

  • Comments: Great support from the race folks. Very well run race. Race is over!!! I am recovering very well. Little soreness in the muscles, but nothing major. Wow. Thought it would take me days to be able to walk again.

  • Comments: I am not sure how to post a race report for a race that was cancelled. Myrtle Beach city officials cancelled the race at 10:30 last night because of snow.IMO,they made a mistake. They could have delayed the start till 9 or 10 this morning when the snow was basicly gone. This race had people from 48 states and other countries. As a minimum,they should have had a contingency plan for bad weather.So far there are no offers for refunds or credit for next year's race. No matter what they do I won't be going back to Myrtle Beach.

  • Comments: I wanted to run this slow and my thinking of slow was like 5:30 but Ive never done a stand alone marathon. I just went out to have fun and keep on my feet. I didnt even have to try to go slow! LOL it just happened. I didnt wear my garmin or anything cause I wasnt going to worrry about my time and didnt want to get upset if my pace was like a slug. At mile 5 my shirt was rubbing my arm and burning so at mile 7 we went past our hotel. Tried to call Tanner to get him up to bring me down a change of shirt but didnt answer. Waited a minute tried again and he was in the shower. I didnt have my key so I had to wait for him so he could unlock the entrance door to get to the room. So I changed my shirt and grabbed a diet dew and had about a third of that and then headed back out to the street and jumped back in the run. Porta potties were hard to come by and only had 2 per stop so the lines were long. Waited for 3 maybe 4 of them throughout the run. At mile 9 I met a lady from Atlanta

  • Comments: This was a pretty good race over all. The set up was pretty good and the people were friendly. The finishers certificate was kinda cheap and there were not alot of souvenirs to buy. I had problems with my knees...even before the start of this race so I really wasnt expecting to do too good. I am just happy to have finished it.
