Marathon Maniac #2050

The Thunder Road Marathon was my third marathon in 3 months which makes me Marathon Maniac eligible, so I am now officially Maniac #2050 (how’s that for a nice round number?). I qualified for Bronze, their lowest level. Their are 8 levels above Bronze, topping out at the Titanium level. To qualify for Titanium are you have to do one of the following:

1. 52 marathons or more in 365 days

2. 30 marathons in 30 US states, countries or Canadian provinces in 365 days

3. 20 countries in 365 days

How’s that for crazy? Don’t think I am qualifying for Titanium any time soon. I may have a shot at Silver next year though, if I run 6 marathons in 6 consecutive months or do at least 8 within 365 days. I have already come to the conclusion that speed is not my thing, so I don’t know if qualifying for Boston is in the cards any time soon. I think running a whole bunch of marathons is a whole lot more realistic of a goal for me, and will hopefully provide an eventual path to Boston.
I’m very curious to know what races other people are looking at for 2010. I’ve got a rough idea but would like to know what other people are thinking…

    I’m going for my bronze status this winter, too! Running Shamrock, NJ and Pocono. I don’t ever see me getting to titanium either!

    Congrats on your maniac status! For 2010 I’ve decided to go big: Boston-Chicago-NYC.

    Congrats on the maniac status (how odd does that sound?) I am thinking of two marathons next year – perhaps the Marine Corps Marathon and Thunder Road. And two half marathons and a sprint triathlon. And a few 5Ks. I just want to make sure I’m always training for *something* – that keeps me out there!

    Welcome to the club, I’m MM #440.

    The only thing I’ve got officially planned for 2010 is Twin Cities in MN, October. There’s one in Montana on my bday that I’d love to do, if I can swing the training and $ situation correctly.

    I right with you on the speed vs number of marathons, but I keep believing that BQ is out there.
