Well, if you're a runner the countdown started about 18 weeks ago. :-)
Saturday, December 6, 2008 is the 31st annual Kiawah Island Marathon (and half marathon). This is a great course--flat, fast, and scenic (my husband and I used parts of the course when training for the Disney Marathon back in 2002).
Because the Kiawah Island Marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon it fills up quickly. Click here for 2008 spectator information and to view forthcoming race photos.
