It's a fully inclusive event. Bring your friends, your family, invite strangers. Run as far as you dare, at whatever speed you can muster. As long as you are making forward progress, they will wait for you at the finish line with your medal.
I entered the half marathon. It needs its own name. I often call it the 20k. It's a long long way that you can't finish without some prep. What a strange course. A short loop around the river, then a long loop to the north end of town, finishing on the same path by the river. The river is scenic and I like running there. I wasn't concerned about timing, so I didn't check my watch the entire event. I just pushed as hard as I thought to be sustainable.

It's good to be out there competing. They gave me a medal and a tree. The tree is lost in the tall grass now. If I can find it I will help it along.
