Hey Tom I see that you're looking for a good marathon in the May-August time frame... obviously "off peak" marathon season... especially down your way... I do know Cleveland is a flat course... same time (May) would be Pocono "Run for the Red" which is a fast course. The Foot Traffic Flat marathon in Portland on July 4th is (as you might expect by the name) incredibly flat as well.

Jake, thank you. The Portland race sounds like the front-runner right now. It sounds like a great family vacation - race combination, which is what I'm looking for. We'll see how the finances / scheduling / life plays out. I see that they only take 600 entrants, so I have to make up my mind pretty quick. Thanks, man.

Yeah that seems like a good one... weather is usually pretty consistent (a lot cooler than you are used to!)... and apparently its a super flat course. Portland is a cool area... we went up for a couple days last June, and we're going back for 4 days this spring which I'm really looking forward to.
