The Blue Ridge Half Marathon - April 21, 2012

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I am still waiting on my pictures from BrightRoom.com, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I survived my first-ever half marathon. Oddly enough I chose one that was billed as "the toughest road race in America!"

And, that it was, but this Duck held a steady walking pace throughout and finished in 3 hours 16 minutes (chip time).

The course for the half included climbing Mill Mountain to the Roanoke star in the first 4 miles from the gun. But, to add to the pain ... Roanoke, VA is a part of the Blue Ridge Mountains and after coming down off that mountain, we were met by numerous steep hills and bridges.

I can only imagine what the full was like, because it included not only Mill Mountain, but also both Roanoke & Peakwood mountains!

Crazy ... huh? Well, crazier is that I am contemplating doing the full next year!
