Resolution Half Marathon and 5k – January 8, 2011 – Travelers Rest, SC
December 26, 2010 | General | 2 Comments|
I ran this half marathon four years ago and found it was a nice way to jump start the year. We had unseasonably pleasant weather in 2007 for the race, which starts and finishes at the George I Theisen YMCA in Travelers Rest. But as I’m writing this we’re 8 inches deep with snow, the temperature is 25 degree and the winds are whipping around at about 25 MPH. So if you’re planning on running this one – be ready for anything!

I really bummed they moved away from the 1st weekend.. 🙁 I wish they would have done it on Sunday the 2nd verses Saturday the 8th… 🙁 I already have my annual Race for the Grasshopper 5k in Cowpens that day…. I have run the New Years Resolution Run Half Marathon 2008, 2009, 2010…. Im sooooo bummed to have to break this streak….ALTHOUGH I wont miss the cold, windy miserable experience of last year’s race…if mother nature so happens to repeat and show up in all her miserable glory….. I realize I will not be spared her wrath by merely being a few miles down the road….but I do know for sure by my past racing performances, that I can pretty much guarantee less time being miserable (at least 1 Hour and 10 Minutes) at a 3.1 miler then at a 13.1 miler………….. lol 😉 However, I do hope we have the pleasure of much nicer and gentler Mother Nature this year….. FOR ALL RUNNERS EVERY WHERE…..IN EVERY RACE (or at least on January 8th 2011)…… 😉
