Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! Today we’re talking about the Abbott World Marathon Majors! The Abbott World Marathon Majors consist of six marathons – New York City Marathon, Berlin Marathon, Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon, Tokyo Marathon and the London Marathon.
This week’s topic – Do you want to run any of the Abbott World Marathon Majors?
Is it possible to answer yes and no to this question? I have run two of the WMM races – New York and Chicago (twice). Would I recommend these two races – absolutely!! Both cities are amazing and the crowd support is awesome.
That being said, I “retired” from the marathon distance after last year’s Chicago Marathon. I honestly have no desire to run a marathon at this point and time. Will that change in a few years? Who knows, but for right now I’m happy with that decision.
But if I were still running marathons, I would definitely want to do the London Marathon. I visited London many years ago on a business trip and I really enjoyed it there. I didn’t get a chance to explore the city that much so I would love the opportunity to go back and run the race and explore the city. Plus I still keep in touch with co-workers that live there and it would be great to visit them!
I’ve never had a desire to run Boston because of the hills and I have no desire to run Berlin or Tokyo just because those aren’t cities on my bucket list to visit. Those are the only reasons I wouldn’t run these 3 particular races.
