March 25, 2012

41:56/8:38 pace

I like this shot because it gives you the city feel from the run downtown.

Dave was the photographer.

039

Our first race together!

Difficulty: Medium

I gave this race a medium difficulty rank due to the large amount of people who run this race. The streets are super crowded so you consistently are swerving in between people to try to make the best time. However, just one hill at the end of the race so the actual course isn’t bad.

Difficulty: Hard

Although this was my first half marathon the hills on this course were KILLER! I mean KILLER! The temperature was perfect for a race, but I will never forget the hill we had to accomplish to see the pirates (they have a hill that once you make it to the top people are dressed up as pirates-most importantly they have water for you).

Difficulty: Easy

The course for this race is on the lake shore path downtown. There are virtually no hills and the view along the was isn’t too bad either. It was a little cooler since this was race was towards the end of the year in November, but overall a pretty easy race.
