A recent article in the Wall Street Journal describes the growing popularity of marathons run on indoor tracks, requiring 150 laps or more to complete the 26.2 mile race.
My son runs indoor track, so I’ve been to a lot of indoor races recently. I get dizzy just watching them. I can’t…
I really considered doing the Instep Indoor Marathon in Milwaukee a few years ago. It sounded like it had everything you needed. Music playing, your own water on every lap if you wanted it, Constant crowd (if they decided to watch the entire race). The price was even right. I just couldn’t get over running that many laps, I know I would keep track of them and that number would just kill morale. Not to mention all those left turns.
Oh jeebus. While I believe this sort of event is for me, should any of my friends ever attempt one, I’d be there for those hundred+ laps with an array of different inspirational signs to break up the monotony.
For realsies - The thought of running this long inside makes me anxious. Serious props to those who can do this.
