Among the great benefits of being a good listener.

- You might get some good advice.
On Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29, after months of using the feet, runners are invited to use the ears to prepare for the MCM by attending one or more of the MCM Runners Conference sessions. You’ll be all ears at these free presentations getting expert insights on a variety of marathon-relevant topics. Advance registration is required but there’s no fee. Just plan your visit to the Health & Fitness Expo by allowing time to attend the Runners Conference. Both, the Expo and the Runners Conference, happen at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, the new MCM HQ hotel.
The schedule includes topics for long time runners and wet-behind-the-ears first timers with speakers including famed Olympians Billy Mills and Jeff Galloway, MCM Director Rick Nealis, as well as experts from MedStar Sports Medicine and others. If you listen to nothing else, then take the advice right here, and sign up for one or multiple sessions–they’re free!
