This week’s Tuesday Topic: If you had a free entry to any of the World Major Marathons, which one would you pick? You can write about this topic or post any running-related blog post.

There is so much excitement right now with the Boston Marathon taking place next week. I cannot wait to watch it again with my students. However, I do wish I were going to Boston to spectate. I think I said last year that I wanted to go this year to do that. Next year?
I’ve only run one of the World Major Marathons – the Chicago Marathon. And I’ve run it 5 times! So which one would be the next one if given free entry to another World Major Marathon? Read more to find out!
There are 3 that I would like to run and have listed them in order. The last 2 are those that I’m not that interested in but could run if given an entry.
➡️ Boston Marathon. This one is on top of the list because I know that I will never get a chance to run it because I will never qualify for it. I know there is a charity route but I really don’t want to do that.
➡️ New York City Marathon. I know many people that have run it have raved about it. Just running the NYC Half Marathon was so much fun and that was half the fun. I am sure the marathon will be a blast.
➡️ London Marathon. One day I would like to go to London. It will be fun to see the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. I know there are other things to see but those two stand out to me the most.
➡️ Berlin Marathon.
➡️ Tokyo Marathon.

I’d pick Boston.
But Chicago is the most likely.
I’m running NY again and if it goes well I’ll do it with friends in 2024 too. You should try it too
It is very tempting!
Almost everyone has picked Boston! That would be my choice too. Followed by London and then Berlin. I’ve already run Chicago and NYC, and then Tokyo is at the bottom of my list (but I would be happy to receive a free entry!)
Boston is popular! I do wish it were easier to run that race.
I hope you can get to do the London one. This is high on my bucket list, too!
The thing with this race is that the timing is not convenient for me. I would need to take a week off from work due to traveling, time difference, etc.
