I figured you guys deserved an update since I haven’t blogged for a week. You know, after I was all, “YAY! Regular posts will resume and life will be all flowers and rainbows because I’m blogging again!” Well, I apologize for that, but now I have something to actually write about since today was the McNeill Bay Half Marathon! Woohoo.
So, the race started at 8AM this morning at the Oak Bay High School in Victoria. As well as the half marathon, there was also a 5K race that started about five minutes before. Maybe I should’ve ran with them but kept going…
It was a scenic out and back course where we ran 10K out and then turned around for the remaining 11.1K that took us through a different area for the last half mile. This little detour, which was farther from where we started, brought us over a quite steep little bridge that went over a creek. And then because I am a genius runner, I went downnnnnnnnnnn. Oh yeah. This happened.
– Comfy race t-shirt
– Everyone was super friendly!
– Few water stations. Maybe I was spoiled during Vancouver half marathons, but this race only had three water stations. What is that nonsense?
