BMW Dallas Marathon- An Inclusive Running event for all Athletes
The BMW Dallas Marathon 2019 is more than just for the long distance runner. As of August, Ivan and I started training for the BMW Dallas Marathon 2019. The only thing is, we signed up for the half (13.1 miles) and not the full marathon. Regardless, I had not been running at all prior to signing up. I am approximately 7 weeks into training and there have been several challenges. While I will keep how I am training and it’s challenges for another post, the BMW Dallas Marathon has some new activities this year that will get the whole community involved, making this race not only for the long distance runners, but for athletes of all levels.
