Wow....when I logged into Facebook this morning it showed me this picture in my "memories" from 7 years ago today.
This was my first half-marathon and the first organized race I'd been in over 13 years (I'd run some 10Ks in college). I ran rather slowly. It took me 2:20:28 to finish, but hey I did it.
This was my "practice race" before my first full marathon that I would go on to run just a few weeks later in support of an awesome charity. But we will get more into that story in a few weeks.
Anyway, I hadn't planned on posting today, but when I saw this on my timeline I thought I'd share.
Anyone else willing to share their first race below?
As runners, we’re lucky. We don’t require expensive equipment or special sports pitches to practice our favorite form of exercise. Plus, it’s free!
What we do appreciate are a few things: a mild climate, plentiful routes, tracks and trails, a supportive local community of runners and perhaps some company.
Ever wondered where in the U.S offer these wonderful qualities and are the best cities for runners? Well, now you do.
