Missoula HM

Monday, July 14, 2014

Yesterday was the Missoula half marathon that I look forward to every year!

We got up at 3:45, on a bus by 4:30.

There were hundreds of buses.

We waited in the dark until everyone arrived and they were getting ready for the start.
There were 32 runner from Lewistown there.

The start line was wild! Very enthusiastic with 4500 people.

I didn't take too many pictures because my hands swelled up and it was hard to take them with my phone.

This was a woman playing drums around mile 2ish

This is favorite every year! I had to stop to take this one.

Annie (DD#2) and me at the finish - looking right into the sun

It was a blast! Didn't PR but finished strong. Can't wait until next year!

Since I don't have the urge to run, I can't imagine how dedicated you are to do this.

I'm glad you had such a good time.

    4400 is a great field of runners! Very cool that you had so many on that bus! I saw this...In 2010, the Missoula Marathon won the Best Marathon in United States award by Runnerís World Magazine. In 2011, the Missoula Marathon was named the Best Tourism Event by the state of Montana. THAT speaks volumes for the qual;ity of the race.
Great job, Debby, and thanks for sharing!
