Hey! The race report is in the works. I'm putting on my final touches and it will probably be done in two parts. We will see. Robert was doing the half and I was doing the full. The course closed before either of us finished. The blog will be up today. I will promise you that.

No race reports? I looked at the spark pages of ON2VICTORY and ABSOLUTZER0 and only the latter has an entry dated 5/19 about Jesse is Awesome HM. I'm confused.

Hmm, ok, I just read that the marathon was cancelled but I'm assuming you were all doing the half (hey, we're in a HM forum after all) since you didn't say otherwise and I understood the HM was not stopped until half of the runners had crossed. That seems very strange to me. Either the race should go on or it shouldn't. Makes no sense to cancel in the middle. (Imagine the runners at mile 12 being told they cannot cross the finish line!)

Perhaps the RD should've changed it to a "fun run". I was at a HM where that happened. The temp was 86F at the start and the temp was expected to go to the 90s with very high humidity. So they turned off all the timing equipment and advised people to run slower and drink more. (Duh!)

You know Robert, I did see you guys pass me when we were lining up to start, but I never saw you again. Did catch up with Nick tho. Another race to remember!

Yes, I was supposed to get pulled, too, but I went on. I planned to do 26.2 miles today and I did with a little extra. There is a blog to follow.

I have been having hip issues also :( Ever since i ran the Pine line half last month I have had nasty bursitis in my hip and running just seems to make it worse. Was supposed to do the Cell com half today but decided against it which was probably a good thing. I hear they pulled everyone off the course due to heat at 9:30 this morning. That had to be a real bummer for anyone still running!

I am not so sure. Lately, I just don't want to run... Also, I've been having major hip issues. I cannot run ONE mile without it hurting...

That is if I get into the lottery for the half marathon. After this full marathon, I am not sure if I ever want to train for a full marathon again. But, than, I will probably change my mind down the line and go crazy and sign up for another one.

I got the e-mail about it and the group I'm coming up with refuses to take the half. Some have issues with them giving the full medal to those that drop down to the half. I do understand why though. They didn't anticipate the weather being like this and since the half is almost full, it's the only way to make sure everyone that finishes gets a medal.

I'm hydrating as I type this. I'll just have to adjust my pace and enjoy Green Bay! Woohoo!

Oh, Savannah, yes, you may have to add meeting us to your bucket list. When is a good time? *smiles*

Hey Nick, got an email today that it is gonna be really warm this time. They are also allowing runners doing the full to make last minute changes to do the half instead if any in your group coming with you feel the need to do so.

Last year, it was pretty chilly and we had a really strong wind to contend with..

See you there, I'm getting pretty juiced up for this event... We're gonna Rawk it!

Will anyone be in the Green Bay area this weekend? I know Robert (ON2VICTORY) and me will be there participating in the Cellcom Marathon weekend. I'm excited that I finally get to meet the legend.

If any other Sparkers will be there, please let us know. I'd love to meet you.
