It's actually a great barometer for knowing when to cut back on pace
and go with what the day brings, and I did just that. I actually used
this race as a training run for my Rim2Rim4Roy challenge in early October. I ran to the start, ran the half marathon
and then walked back to the hotel. Twenty miles in total and a perfect
training day for me. If you're looking to get in a fun training run and can control your pace, try using a half marathon and warm up with a few miles before the gun goes off. I will often use half marathons as supported long runs, especially if I am on the road traveling. Plus, you get the extra bennies too (sports drink, bathrooms, shirt, medal...)
So I guess we're headed into fall, and with that begins my search for the perfect carmel apple. Because what is fall without carmel apples? Not a fall at all...
