First Half Marathon! (Read 931 times)

    I'm runing in my first half marathon this saturday 9/9 the "Cheesehead Half Marathon " anyone have any advice?
      Enjoy the experience, don't worry so much about finishing time as just finishing, and get a free massage afterwards!

        No advice, other than to have fun. Smile BTW, Cheeseheads are the BEST people on the planet! I know, 'cause I was born and raised one (moved across the lake when I was 20 and have been in MI for 13 years, now, but it's not nearly as cool as the great state of beer, cheese, and brats)!

        She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

          Free massage? Did somebody say free massage? Where do I sign up?

          Roads were made for journeys...

            Good luck, Chris! Be sure to tell us how it went!

                they have free massages when you finish? I never heard about that Smile
                We have them here sometimes! Last year at the Ansterdam HM I had one, and it was great. It made it possible for me to ride my bike home... I hope they offer it again this year. About your HM: everything the others said, make sure you drink enough on the way. Good luck! Cheeseheads? De Ruyter? Sounds very Dutch to me Smile bas

                  Bas, email me harumph@gmail.com and I'll tell you my last name--it's about as Dutch as they come (though it's my married name. I don't think I have any Dutch blood, but I do have Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Scot). Big grin k
