https://www.facebook.com/RunNikeWomenSeries My running friend, Ann, also made the lottery. There's a lot of confusion about some entries. This site may help: https://register.racepartner.com/nwmsf/validateentry Thank you NIKE!
In May, before entry into the race, the logistics started by finding where the starting line was located and how to get back after completion of the marathon. Oh yes shuttle buses are provided. In my experience, shuttles are only effective IF you can find them. I'll make sure I bring credit card or cab fare. Reading comments on Facebook, the women who ran this race in past years to book your hotel ahead of time because the lower priced hotel rooms run out fast. There are more affordable hotel further away, but being near the start line is a must for me. The race starts at 0630. Nike also opened up a training application: https://werunsf.nikeapp.com/ . It begins on July 8th, running 5 days a week, one cross training day, and one rest day. Wow! Let the training begin!
To kick start my training, I'll be running the 39th Annual Coronado Independence Day 15k. That's the way it is when training for winter marathons. It means training during the summer!
