With that being said we decided that we would hit the South Side Bike trail...it's paved so it shouldn't be too messy. (park here)
Time is the same: 7:00am (we have a few new people on the email list so if you're running early give a shout-out)
Enjoy the weather while it is here...only 2-3 more months before spring! ;)
On a seperate note -- I'd like to work on updating the race results page for 2011 (since I have nothing up there yet) -- please email me if you've run a race this year, which one, date, your time, and race report if you have it. Thank you!
Race report: This was an absolutely gorgeous course that I would highly reco for anyone looking to do a full or ½ marathon.The field size is relatively small (~1000), but the race was really well organized and run.For us flatlanders, the combination of hills (you climb 1000+ ft in the first 5 miles) and elevation make it an extremely difficult course, so probably not a place to get a PR, but worth it if you want a challenge and some beautiful scenery.I personally had to do a lot of walking in the first 5 miles, but that seemed pretty common.Even my husband, who finished in 1:46 walked a bit and had 2 of his miles splits at 10+ minutes despite averaging just over 8min/mile overall.
