    I had an awesome time! The out and back actually made it fun, friendly and made me feel like we were all family. Very nice finisher medal. We ran on the banks of the Rio Grande. Don’t forget to dress up!

    This race has been on my interest list for about four years now, but I always failed to register for it. But this year the 50 State Half Marathon club selected it to be the annual meet up. I also have never attended a 50 State Half Marathon meet up even though I joined in 2010. I have been a slacker and thought attending this would bring back my motivation and allow me to check off a race that has been on my to-do list for a while (plus a new state).

    The race production was great. The Race Director was in attendance Saturday at the meet up banquet and I enjoyed his enthusiasm. Hearing the people who ran the Saturday race I was excited to go. It was a bit, okay a lot, colder than I expected, but I improvised and was warm enough. There was a large crowd for the run, most of them fellow club members so it really created a great atmosphere. The race was flat and would be fast if I were still in shape. Basically a walking/bike trail along the banks of the Rio Grande river (which really wasn’t so grande). As the day warmed up it was a very pleasant running experience. Two laps on an up-and-back pavement; fairly straightforward. The little bridges were a bit slippery in the morning, but by the second lap they were fine.

    Great job to Clint for hosting a wonderful event. He got us ready to go with a pre-race talk to explain the course and it was a fun day. I am glad I attended. Oh, and a bonus months ago – I originally signed up for the race but neglected the discount code. He applied that and sent me a refund check. I had an old address listed so it was returned to him. He wrote me again to get the new address and resent it back to me. A lot of time and commitment hunting me down for $15. Much appreciated that he took the time to do that.
