Geoduck Gallop Half Marathon, Olympia WA
February 3, 2013
The Geoduck Gallop Half Marathon course was a beautiful scenic run that takes runners onto the rural roads and bike paths surrounding the campus of Evergreen State College.
Being my first half marathon I was intimated. I had only ever trained to run up to 10 miles so running 13.1 was a bit out of my comfort zone as you can imagine. The bursts of cheering from the volunteers along this course were a highly important factor in the momentum I needed to keep going for a first time Half Marathoner such as myself.
This run is certainly on my list of must do runs for next year!
