Year after year, I see so many in my online running community run this race and post pictures of the incredible meet ups that take place. Specifically, the Marathon Maniacs and Half Fanatics throw a heck of a party at what is known as Maniac Corner. Cool! As a Half Fanatic member, I am looking forward that!
The Route 66 Marathon event takes place November 17-18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There is a 5k, half marathon, marathon and marathon relay. I’m taking on the “double” which is the 5k on Saturday and the half on Sunday. I hear it is hilly. Yikes! My former running partner who moved to Hilton Head a few years ago is meeting me there for a girls weekend. She has been dealing with some injuries this year, so she is going to run the 5k only.
Some things that make the Route 66 Marathon unique:

Who doesn’t love Wonder Woman? I grew up watching her on Saturday morning cartoons and always thought she was pretty cool. So much so, that I bought a wonder woman Halloween costume a few years back and have wore it in several races!

Disclaimer: I received an Eat Smart Precision Luggage Scale to review in exchange for an honest review.
As a former airline employee, it was ingrained in me not to check a bag, unless absolutely necessary. I thrive on traveling light and not dealing with baggage claim. However, there are a few times a year when it becomes necessary – like my annual family vacation.
I am giving the Precision VOYAGER Digital Luggage Scale from Eat Smart a try. I have reviewed some of their other scales and have been so impressed with the precision of the readings. I knew I would be getting a quality product.
I really wish I had a luggage scale on my trip to Scotland & Ireland earlier this spring. I was so worried that I would be over the limit that I drastically overloaded my carry on bags to the point of being miserable trudging through the airports, only to find when I checked in that I had a good 8-10 more pounds to spare! I could have bought more souvenirs! LOL
Here are the features of this scale:
Ok, now it was time to put it to the test. I added a 20 pound dumbbell to my suitcase. First I weighed my bag on my regular eat smart bathroom scale for accuracy. Them I secured the SmartGrip handle on it and lifted. Within seconds, the weight popped up on the screen. The two weights were in a few ounces of each other.
This scale can currently be found on Amazon for $14.95. Makes for a great holiday gift for the traveler in your life.
