Marquette Half Marathon 9-1-12 - come run with me


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, September 01, 2012


I did this with my cell phone video camera so it is pretty wobbly in spots but I had alot of fun making this... come run a Half Marathon with me! Video Length- 6:23

I didnt really plan on doing this but i videoed the race start then started shooting some parts of the race. Then i got the idea of actually putting something together to share so this was totally off the cuff.

You may want to adjust your volume, the music seems to be a little loud and i couldn't figure out how to adjust it but it isnt bad...

NOTE: Mile 7- I high five a friend I met at the UP Northwoods Triathlon in July this year. How cool was it to see her at the race...

The finish segment is a little rough but so was I... cramps and all.. lol... if you turn up the volume at that point, you can hear them call my name out as a finisher...

Enjoy... This was a fun day and sharing the race with you was a pleasant distraction from all of the other stuff going on right now.

I also had such an unexpected surprise, I met someone who was reading my blogs but didnt really comment. I was totally blown away and with my mind somewhat distracted with the work situation, I was taken totally by pleasant surprise. I asked her to leave a comment so I could get in touch with her and send her a goodie. Hey- Thanks for the support and all the encouraging feedback, I really appreciate you.....

    Hey, I know all those spots. Tee Hee Now you know why I say I'll do this race every year. But I will say that course adjustment down behind the new Hampton threw me off. I've heard some rumblings it may have added a couple tenths of a mile to the race. What did your Garmin say? Glad you had a good run. Mine wasn't so great (run-wise), but it WAS a beautiful day for a long walk. ;) I'll get my blog posted within the next day hopefully. The "unknown sparkie" is my good friend METHUSELAHRUNS. Great to see you again - what's our next race together? You doing the Soo again?

    Nice job. You seem to have gotten your heart back in it. Do you need any recovery time after a half marathon, or are you good to go the next day.
