Hi Aimless,

No hints or helps here, I'm a newbie as well, but I just wanted to say good luck with the training and the race--make sure to enjoy it!

I have not run that particular race but have done lots of other HMs. Enjoy the day, enjoy the experience, smile lots, talk to people - there is only one first and take it all in =)

I just registered for my first half! It's the Vancouver (BC) Half and it's on May 4, 2014! Now we get to work. Does anyone who's run this race have any tips for a newbie?
