Short recap. Second slowest half marathon ever. This is the first year I have run the new course and I hate it. Last three miles is pretty much all uphill. I was warned but decided to do it anyway. My bigger problem is I am still hanging on to about 10 pounds of body weight I really don't need. The morning was pretty warm and humid. That never helps.
After about mile 5 I was completely alone the rest of the race. RnR has basically abandoned this race. Only a few bands along the way and only a couple sets of cheerleaders. Far different than years past. It was crickets most of the way. A real bummer especially when you are running alone.
