Sunday Summary

Multiple Marathon Monday: Multiple Marathons or Ultra Marathons

Which is the more difficult task – running consecutive marathons or running ultra marathons? Both can be a challenge and a lot will depend on how well your body handles recovery. Which do you prefer?

New American Express Delta Offers Out

American Express refreshed their Delta credit card offers so that they now come with a statement credit. However, they have also raised the required minimum spending amount. Unfortunately, the award miles that are part of the bonus has not gone up. There are some 50,000 Delta American Express Gold card offers that are being targeted, so watch your e-mail!

Traveling for Shorter Races

I admit it – I love running marathons and ultra marathons. It is rare for me to travel for shorter races, but I know that is something that many people are interested in. So, this looks at that and what will be coming to help you choose which shorter races to travel for.

New Garmin Forerunner GPS Watches

Garmin announced their new updates to the Forerunner 210 and 610 watches – the FR 220 and the FR 620. They look pretty fantastic and I am looking forward to trying them out!

Southwest 50K Rapid Reward Cards Are Back!

These offers are among the best credit card offers around! Check this post to find out all the detail you need before you think of applying.

Having An Emergency Miles Account

Collecting miles and points are fun – redeeming them for “once in a lifetime” trips are even more fun! However, sometimes reality comes into play and we need to travel for emergencies. Miles can be a wonderful tool in such an instance. This looks at some tips in forming a special “emergency miles” account for those terrible times.

Does Swag Influence Your Race Choice?

I love getting some great race goodies. It is even better when they are high-quality practical goodies (I have not bought a running tech shirt in years!). Do these items influence which races you choose? Look at some of the swag I have picked up and see if that would influence your race choice!

Boston Marathon Registration Has Closed!

The time has come and all 36,000 Boston Marathon slots have been filled (by those who have qualified, there are some charity slots that are still left). Did you get in? Did you qualify but chose to pass this year?
