    I had no plans to run a half marathon this day and never registered until the day before. However, when I saw that this was close to home and my training plan called for 10 miles, I decided to get another race under my belt.

    US Road Running organizes countless virtual runs, but also holds a number of physical runs in my region. They have a wide variety of unique medals and their race fees are small. This race cost just $35.00 which included a finisher hat, a quality medal, hydration on course, and snacks.

    The conditions for the race (beyond control of the race directors) were terrible – 74 degrees at race start to 84 degrees when I finished and high humidity. The course was an out and back loop that was run 8 times along the shore of the lake and on a narrow trail through the woods. The field of runners was very small, so the width of the path was more than adequate. It was technically a trial race, but relatively flat with only minor obstacles (wooden bridge, drainage pipe, occasional rock or root).

    Runners were given 8 rubber bands to track each lap and the race team was very helpful with refilling water bottles at the start/finish line for each lap. Even though I had registered the day before, the crew had my info when I checked in before the race.

    Overall, while I hated the heat and humidity, the availability of a local race and race support was a good value for the small price. As I said earlier, the bling, while not customized with the date, was unique and appealing. Oh, and with a small runner field, I will receive an award for placing in the top 3 of my age group in the form of a time sticker to place on the back of the medal.
