      Thanks!

       

      Funny bit of info: One of the Fanatics that also ran the race stated in her RR that Mr. Reinke himself was there and that he was the announcer. He also drew a line on the road with his foot to mark the start. Roll eyes

       

      I was in the back so I didn't see that mess.

                  Congrats on another HM finish!  Sounds like a "functional" half marathon.  I've done races like that.  No frills, no excitement, just a route with a finish clock.  It's hard to get really jazzed up for those races.  260 people spread out over 13.1 miles...there had to be some periods of running alone.

                    Congrats! I enjoyed reading this because I went to USC and used to run down by the river all the time and it brought back some memories!
