Hey Hip Runners – I revisited the Phili Marathon last weekend – was anyone else there ? It’s becoming, in my book, one of the best running events in the States. Can’t think of one thing I’d ask them to change- except for maybe a bit of the Rocky theme between miles 23- 25 !! If anyone is considering an 8k, half marathon or the full marathon check out Phili. It’s a great course – the locals are friendly, plenty of beer on the course and a great time to be had everywhere. As for doing it as a Hip Runner – couldn’t be any prouder. Philadelphia was my 8th marathon since having a full hip replacement over 4 years ago. Our Strava group does wonders for my motivation and it’s so wonderful to see everyones accomplishments – keep it up everyone. And if you are very much in your recovery mode – take your time, keep working at it and great things will happen for you.
Anyone doing Tokyo, Boston or London next year ?
