The rockstar next to me was Jean, who ran her first half on Sunday! She rocked it for 2:39:20 finish. We ran step for step for the first eight miles or so, before we parted ways at an aid station. But I saw her heading for the finish line as I headed out for my extra eight. So proud of her!
The race (Crossroads Half Marathon) was small but had great support (fabulous photographers!), particularly the free GUs and the snowcones at the finish line. Race directors take note--snowcones at the finish are the Bomb!
