This title should have read Olathe MARATHON 2009.
But the marathon was cancelled last week due to the snow and ice.
They were able to have the half marathon this weekend so we hopped on board since the marathon was not able to be rescheduled.
Nikemom drove down Friday night to run Saturday.
What a cutie! Very kind and fun. My kinda girl.
She even brought some homemade salsa and jalapenos along with some other awesome goodies.
Race morning we were up and out the door by 6:00 so we could switch out our marathon bibs and chips for half marathon stuff.
Windy. Windy. Windy. Was the name of the game. Again.
This year they had a new course and it was much more appealing.
For having to postpone the race a week, everything went off without a hitch and kudos need to be extended to the race committee. Great Job Guys!
I had a good race. The race clock read 2:27:46 as I crossed the finish. But better yet, after the race they served up some locally brewed Boulevard Beer! Now that is worth all the running in the wind.
All in all...a great time.
