Run Run Rhonda - Blooms to Brews Half Marathon Recap

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

This past week-end I ran a half marathon in Woodland, WA... the "Blooms to Brews". The course was scenic and flat with views of the Columbia River in areas; however no tulips! The weather has been too cool and wet for the tulips to bloom and most likely they will pop in a couple more weeks. There was a chance of rain; but the skies were dry and temps were in high 50's by the time I finished... so really pretty ideal. There were some areas with beautiful daffodils and I enjoyed seeing those. The DH and I took the RV and stayed in a park about 3 miles from the start line. The half started at 7:40am so I didn't have to get up until 6:00am which was a treat. Typically, I have to get up around 5:00am in order to eat, get ready and be at the venue with enough time to get in the porta potty line, etc. A nice relaxing event and this is now the 26th month in a row that I have participated and run at least one half marathon. The streak continues! Next month is the Cinco de Mayo Half in Portland, OR on; you guessed it; May 5th.
