Running For NYC and Baltimore

Marathons seem to be the new running rage in the last few years.  This fall there is a slew of marathons to choose from.  Of course here in New York City there is the world famous marathon, but other places like Baltimore seem to be happening events as well.

We asked two runners from NYC what they though of adding Baltimore to their race schedule.

We first asked Frank Storch from Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. “Normally I would be training only for the NYC Marathon, but I decided to go for the Baltimore Marathon in October at a slower clip to get ready for the NYC Marathon,” Frank Storch said.

Another runner, Shlawnda Stevens echoed Storch’s view, at least as an ideal. “Yeah I think that maybe an interesting approach, but my only question would be the rebound time after Baltimore.”

Thankfully there is still plenty of time to sign up and decide either between the two or to do both.
