The San Diego Holiday Half Marathon taught me that I will probably avoid races in Southern California in future… not because it was bad, but because there’s not a lot of shade. And direct sunlight is not really my favorite thing when it comes to running 13 or so miles.
I was attracted to the Holiday Half Marathon & Ugly Sweater 5k by its date and location but also by the prospect of a big, shiny, extra medal! I mean, it’s dang pretty! And I’d been wanting to try one of these back to back challenges for quite some time.
It’s been two weeks since I ran the Hotlanta Half Marathon, and I guess I’m sufficiently recovered to write about it. What possessed me to sign up for a half marathon in Atlanta in JUNE… I’ll never know. But it was sort of worth it. Sort of.
