Running ’round and ’round and ’round and ’round for Half #51
This morning I ran my 51st half and 56th race over 13.1 miles since July 2011. Not to mention my second half marathon of 2014. Don’t be too impressed, because I don’t have another organized half or longer until March 8th (which will be pretty cool, but I’ll blog about that later). That is one of the reasons why I am not a fan of the winter months in the northern hemisphere. Luckily I don’t have to deal with polar vortexes and the like. Just stupid snow and ice.
But, I digress.
Luckily, this race wasn’t outside in the snow. There was plenty of ice, but that’s because the race was at the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns. This was my third year running the New Year’s Run Resolution. There’s not much to say about the course other than it’s warm, there are a lot of left turns and you see a lot of the same people every quarter mile. Oh, the joys of running on an indoor track. But, it really promotes a party atmosphere and you get to see running friends that don’t run at your pace. That’s fun.
Anyways, here are a few snaps of the day events. Make sure to come on Monday for my whole race report. Enjoy the pictures! It really was a party …
