||Half Marathon State # 08
Half Marathon #15
On Saturday, November 08, 2014, I ran with my running partner, Rachel, in the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Savannah, GA. This was my 8th state toward my 50 By 50 Challenge to run a half marathon in all 50 states before I turn 50. It was also my 15th half marathon. Savannah is a beautiful city, and everything is relatively close. Because I had planned to do this race in 2013, I already had a plan, so I booked a hotel early, as they fill up even before the race registration goes out. We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard, which is an awesome location, because you are halfway between the start and finish lines.
This was the view from our room.
We woke up about 5 AM, had a little breakfast & fluids, got ready, and off to the start line we went.
I planned a meetup for our Fifty States Half Marathon Club at the start line (Customs House) at 6:15 AM. I had never met anyone from the club, so I was apprehensive if anyone would show. I made a sign, and that helped us all meet up. I think there were 11 of us to show. A great turnout! We only chatted for a few minutes, then we all had to get to our various corrals.
On Saturday, November 8, 2014, I completed the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon, in Savannah, Georgia.
This was my 8th state completed in my 50 By 50 Challenge. I have updated the page with this race’s information.
I have also added a new medal page for the state of Georgia which includes this race’s medal image.
I will have the race recap later this week. Stay tuned.
Yesterday we got our notice that our bib number/corral assignments were available for the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on November 8, 2014. I will be in Corral 7 with bib #7606. I put an estimated finish time of 2 hours. My running partner Rachel put a finish time of 1:55 and got Corral 4. Palm to forehead, as I goofed there. But she will start back with me and it will still work out well for us.
