It’s taken me a long time to decided between two 1/2 Marathons that take place back to back weekends in October.
1. The Valley Harvest Marathon
I’ve talked about it here AND more extensively here about them but just couldn’t decide until a few weeks ago when I was at a youth run. I was chatting with the race director from the Valley Harvest and she talked about when she ran the 1/2 and FULL and something just clicked. Valley Harvest 1/2 it would be for me.
So…it looks like I’ll run my second 1/2 Marathon this Fall … gulp!
Don’t get me wrong, I still want to do the PEI 1/2 Marathon and will run it someday. I plan on running my Half and then make our way to Halifax for our family (Canadian) Thanksgiving Dinner….head’s up MOM….I’ll be RUNgry :)
Now, PEI isn’t entirely out of the question for me as I am debating on running the 10k distance still. I think it would be a good introduction to the event itself and a fun way to finish off the running season.
So, Valley Harvest 1/2 here I come…PEI 1/2…I’ll run you next year…maybe I’ll run my first FULL in PEI – Ha ha! I have to get it checked off my bucket list one of these days :)
How long does it take you to decide on a race?
Anyone running a 1/2 Marathon this Fall ? Which one?
Have you ever met the Race Director of a big race? I have met two, pretty down to earth race directors.
