Another confession: I'm SO guilty of going back, year after year, to these favorite races.
The thing is, I feel ZERO remorse is doing so. These races never get old, but still offer a comfy "been there-done-that" nuance.
One such race is the IMT Des Moines Marathon. Now in its 16th year, it was in full force this past weekend in Iowa's capital city. This was my 10th time making an appearance for the weekend's festivities, and my 8th time running the half marathon.
