1st Half and fun with Friends (about: 2001)|
A Runner from Dartmouth, NS (12/23/01)
Training for a full, it seemed only logical to give a try on a half. I did this with a few of my training friends and we had a good time. An out and back course which is mostly on country highway which wreaked havoc on my right hip due to the slope of the road. However there aren't many hills, all the runners are extremely friendly (including the leaders on the way back who cheered us on!), and some people even came out of their houses to cheer us on. I even passed an impromptu water station set up by some kids.
The finish was a little confusing but everyone was very encouraging. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do it again next year.
