I know none of you will be surprised when I say I already have a race planned for after Baby B gets here. I'll be participating in the Kansas City Marathon Series 10K on October 21st and this is my attempt to get you to join me! Here are 3 reasons why you should consider running in the Kansas City Marathon series this October:
1. They partner with great charities.
The Kansas City Marathon Series has a number of official charity partners so that you can run for a cause. They have partnered with organizations such as World Vision, KC Pet Project, and Team Fidelis. Learn more HERE.
2. The Kansas City scenery.
I'm a huge fan of Kansas City. The race course takes you past a ton of KC's best attractions and neighborhood (although this obviously ranges depending on the distance you choose) including the WWI Memorial, Country Club Plaza, Nelson Atkins Museum, and Westport.
3. The weather.
I am NOT a fan of Midwest weather, however, there couldn't be a better time of year to participate in a race in the Midwest if you're going to. The historical average high for October 21 is 66 degrees, can you have more perfect fall running weather?!
Check out the below recap video of the 2016 race:
