This was my first half marathon in 5 years and couldn’t have asked for a better race. I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of performance; ~8 weeks prior to the race, I sprained my ankle unable to run for 6 out of the 8 weeks leading up to the race. I almost decided to defer my entry and wait until next year but had signed up with 4 other friends so I decided to run after all with little expectation. While I didn’t set a PR, I performed much better than I could have imagined (2:13 finish!) and so proud for pushing through. I’m more excited about running than I’ve been in a long time because of this race!

Aside from 2 intimidating hills, the course was very forgiving. There was a long stretch of gravel but I actually really loved this portion and was able to zone out and catch up to a lot of people which kept me going.

The morning had some mist but nothing crazy and exactly what you’d expect this time of year. I run my best in the cooler temps and couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Orca Running said it was a cupless race but they actually did provide some cups if you forgot yours. My friend let me borrow a collapsable cup that fit into my flip belt and I didn’t feel like it slowed me down more than a minute per stop. Overall, it was very well organized, and came with a medal and t-shirt.
