Running the Glass…

“Disclaimer: I received entry into the Glass City Marathon to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Late last year while at the Akron Marathon Expo, I came across the booth for the Glass City Marathon.  A race that peaked my interest, but didn’t know if it would fit into my race schedule, marathon wise.  Well to my excitement the Glass City Marathon just so happens to be a BibRave race partner.  So to my delight I was able to receive an entry into not the Full Marathon, but the Half Marathon.

So the race is held in Toledo, OH and you may be wondering why it is called the Glass City Marathon and not the Toledo Marathon.  Well it just so happens to be the nickname of Toledo, OH, which took on the nickname a long time ago because of its storied history in the American Glass industry.


I will be running the half the weekend before my full marathon at the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH.  Therefore I will be using this race as my last long run prior to that race.  Depending on how I feel will determine if I go out blazing or running this as a fun race!
