Fun first race of the season and first time racing a trail half marathon
This race was the earliest I have tried to prepare for a half marathon. The start of the day was so cold there was still ice on the course. In spite of that, the course was well marked and scenic. A large portion of it was spent close to the river.
I have a long term goal of racing a half marathon in every state so this allowed me to check off Maryland.
Lesson that I learned during prepartions was the warm gloves MATTER. I am so thankful for the warm gloves I wore the entire race.
Overall definitely a fun race and signing up for something early made me start training earlier with longer runs.
