Celebrate Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day At Norma’s Cafe, Drop The Beat With Zedd At The Bomb Factory And Float Away With Slow Magic At Trees.

Runners, it’s about time to start training for December’s Dallas Marathon. Whatever training methods you choose to employ are all up to you, but here’s some very handy advice we don’t mind sharing with you: always make sure you know your running route. Don’t be like the runners who gave up their lead-of-the-pack positions because they took the wrong route.

That’s right. Six runners accidentally took the wrong turn during the Venice Marathon. How did it happen?  Well, the motorcycle crew that was leading the top six runners took a wrong turn and officials didn’t realize what had happened until after the runners had gone 100 meters off-route.

Their mistake was Eyob Faniel’s gain, as he became the first Italian to win the marathon in 22 years. So there’s some happy news, even if the other runners accidentally got booted from the marathon.

So even if you’re not planning on running the Dallas Marathon, consider heading out to one of these happenings, and please, don’t get lost along the way.
