Get ready for some honesty, y’all. I ran out of time today and I don’t actually have a real post ready for you in regards to the Runner’s World Half Marathon and Festival. Runner’s World has graciously allowed me to tag along to their events twice now (full disclosure: they sponsored my involvement in the races) and I don’t want to forget anything important. Instead of recapping the races tonight, I’m just going with one of my favorite types of posts: sentence per picture. I’m getting a little too used to writing these, aren’t I?
What “Team Wombat” lacked in scavenger hunt skills, we more than made up for in enthusiasm and general awesomeness.
I was more than excited to receive this new yoga gear, but man was it embarrassing trying to “gracefully” use it all.
They fed us the best food this weekend, and I really don’t know how I’ll cope with having to cook my own mediocre food again.
A very important lesson was learned this weekend: cheap beer does not make you better at blackjack or faster during races.
There is clearly no better way to prepare for a race than to pull a Taylor and just “Shake It Off” at the start.
I love, love, love meeting new people and these were some pretty awesome ones.
Golden is now known for three equally important things: running a 2:45 marathon at age 12, founding Altra, and throwing sick gang signs.
No big deal, just an altercation with an elderly woman who happened to have an abnormal amount of road rage.
I had trouble adding multiple layers to my ensemble and apparently that lady can’t really relate.
It’s not a Runner’s World race without forcing Bart Yasso to take multiple pictures with you.
No worries, y’all. I will post an actual recap soon. In the meantime, just know that I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to head to Bethlehem this weekend. I always come back from trips like this feeling a mix of appreciation and inspiration. Now let’s just see if I use that motivation as momentum to actually do something else soon. I said after the last Hat Trick that I might run a marathon, but maybe this time I’ll actually do it. 😉
Question: If you run races, what was the best one you ran all year? I’m looking to form a little game plan for next year and I’d love some input!
