Feld’s 2010 Marathon Schedule

Comments (10)

Well – the 2010 marathon season is upon us.  As I prepare to head out for a three hour run, I decided to finalize my 2010 calendar. 

2009 sucked for me – I didn’t complete any marathons on my way to doing a marathon in every state by the time I’m 50.  Mild injuries, several colds, fatigue from work and travel, and general lack of rhythm are my excuses while a temporary failing of my iron will is the real reason. 

Out with the 2009 lameness – it’s a new year and we’ll try again.  My best year was 2008 when I did five marathons so let’s up that by one and do six this year.  Here are the one’s I’m currently planning to do.

  1. 02/28/10 – New Orleans, LA: Rock ‘n’ Roll Mardi Gras Marathon
  2. 04/11/10 – St Louis, MO: GO! St. Louis Marathon
  3. 06/12/10 – Marathon, IA: Marathon to Marathon
  4. 08/21/10 – Rachel, NV: E.T. Full Moon Midnight Marathon
  5. 10/17/10 – Detroit, MI: Detroit Free Press / Flagstar Marathon
  6. 12/11/10 – Kiawah, SC: Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon

I’m always game to have friends tag along and run with me so feel free to reach out if you are so inclined.  And – I’m trying to figure out what kind of new special 2010 charity thing to add on to my existing sponsors Return Path and Pixie Mate so I’m open to suggestions.  And – as always – a super huge thanks to my amazing coach Gary Ditsch at Endurance Base Camp for putting up with me.

See you in a few weeks New Orleans!

    You're welcome to train with the Dana-Farber Marathon team whenever you're in Boston. Thursday night's Crossroads Pub run is a crowd favorite!

    The Mardi Gras Marathon in 2003 was my first marathon. It was a different course back then and it was not a rock and roll. The crowd support was not great back then but hopefully with the new course (threw both parks) and being a rock and roll, you will get a good crowd. If you need restaurant suggestions for New Orleans I was there for 4 years of college and might be able to help, just let me know.

    Anyway, good luck!

    I'm more than excited to head to New Orleans. Should be a fun group to run (and travel with) … maybe I can make another trip or two in 2010 to those on your list. Kiawah would be nice b/c South Carolina is still on my list and everyone says it's a great December race.

    Kiawah Rocks, and that course is beautiful

    Good luck with training and runnig your upcoming marathons. The current Olympic marathon champion, Sammy Wanjiru will be running the half-marathon at the Rock N' Roll New Orleans. He's an amazing athlete.
