Aimee and I will try the La Paz Marathon on March 10. Fortunately, there is a big hill to start the event because the elevation alone (10,500'-13,500') wasn't enough to make this undertaking the stupidest thing ever. We hope to get to the top of the big hill after 2 hours and then descend, more or less, for eighteen miles. No problemo.
Here is a link to the course with an altitude profile:
So we have to make some training runs. Here we are heading out for a really swell half-marathon:
I am the old fat gringo on the left, in case you were wondering.
And, as luck would have it, we still had good weather at the finish in Mecapaca:
Just twice that effort and it's done. Oh, and a little higher in elevation.
