Welcome back to our Sunday Summary Series where we list the stories that were covered throughout the week.
This marked the 5th update in my challenge for the Reykjavik Marathon. It was my last full week before the marathon and was getting me pretty excited! In addtion, I looked at the need for hydration and some tips concerning that.
For this post, I brought up the Flying Blue Promo that I spoke of last week. If you live in or near the Chicago area and will be participating in the Chicago Marathon, there is a way you can throw a second marathon on to that with very cheap awards to Europe. Check it out.
This is a great card to consider if you have a business or have been thinking of starting a business. Not only is a different Chase card than most people have held, but it is also a great way to pick up 50,000 United miles. With a conservative valuation, it puts the value of this sign-up bonus at $1,000! Not too bad!
With the NYC marathon coming up quickly, people are starting to find hotel rooms booked up and the cheaper rates are disappearing. In this detailed post, I ran down all the available hotels in the area with major hotel chains for award redemption. There are quite a few! Search through to see if any sound appealing to you.
I did a stupid thing on Tuesday by not putting sunscreen on the part of my feet under my sandals. Seriously?! Just a few days before a marathon and I let my feet get burned like that? Anyone else done something stupid before a race?
I am not a really picky person, but there are some things that I like to find in a hotel I have chosen as my race base. These are 6 of the chief items. What do you look for in your hotel stays?
Yesterday was the marathon I have been training for (for just a few weeks, though). I gave many of the ways it was possible to follow runners in that event. There will be more of this marathon over the next few days, but it was great!
