Atlantic City Marathon

Race information


Goal Description Completed?
A Finish Yes


I used My Run by ASICS and followed a 3-4 run per week generic plan with a long run on every other Sunday. Got up to 18.5 miles as my longest long run.


I live fairly locally so I hitched a ride in with another first timer and together we stretched and hung out in Bally's Casino until it was about 10 minutes to start. Then we made our way to literally the back of the starting line pack.


It took us 2 minutes to get to the starting line when the gun went off. Both me and my running partner did a 5K this time last year, we loved it. We had never run before. Then in April of this year we did a half Marathon and loved that too. So as the gun was going off we both made a comment how a year ago we had literally been nervous to run a 5K and now we're doing this crazy thing.
The course took us onto the northern east side of Atlantic City. Ran on the highway and into a tunnel around some of our larger casinos Bogota, Harris, Golden Nugget, and the new OCEAN resort. We hit the world famous boardwalk and ran the length of that, then said goodbye to the Half-Marathon runners as we set out into three other cities on the island (Ventor, Margate, and Longport). Then we took a back-bay tour of Margate before hopping back onto the boardwalk for the final 3 miles which finished in front of Ballys. As I write this I can't believe i'm summing up this experience and route into a few short sentences. First, the wind was howling, especially in the three smaller cities to the south. It felt like you were running against the wind in every direction down there. Miles 17-21 felt really long. Miles 21-26 felt like they were each 10 miles.
The memory I hold now of crossing that finish line ranks up third after proposing to my wife and the birth of my daughter. There are few memories that will stick with you like that, and I know in my heart of heart's I'll never be able to recreate what that moment felt like again. No other race will be my first marathon and (i've sworn) never will I run a Marathon again. 5K's are fun, Half-Marathons are perfect. The actual Marathon is murder. I've gone the distance and I stand by this statement, but damn if you're reading this and haven't done one, do it. I can't explain my love-hate relationship with this race.


I felt sick. I went home, took a nice hot bath, and have been rewarding myself with pizza and ice-cream for two days. I'm going back to a healthy diet right now.
