|Half Marathon State # 15
Half Marathon #28
On Sunday, September 18, 2016 I ran in the Santa Fe Thunder Half Marathon in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This was my 15th state toward my 50 By 50 Challenge. This was also my 28th half marathon, and probably my most challenging. There were 1,372 participants with 1,155 finishers. The weather for the race was great. It was around 50 degrees at the start and increased to about 58 degrees at the finish. There was little to no humidity in New Mexico, which made it really comfortable. However, unlike most of my races, humidity was not the issue on this day.
Here is what I ended up wearing for the race.
I have friends Rachel and Aaron that live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I stayed with them for the weekend, and we all ran the race together. I was lucky to have friends there, because they knew about altitude sickness and kept a close eye on me during the race.
