|Half Marathon State # 14
Half Marathon #27
Headwinds & Hills…. On Sunday, May 15, 2016 I completed my 14th State in my 50 By 50 Challenge in Hastings, Minnesota. I ran the 31st Annual Carpenter Nature Center Apple Blossom Half Marathon. I was in Minneapolis, Minnesota for the week for a conference for work, so I sought out a race I could complete while I was there. Hastings is about 40 minutes outside of Minneapolis.
This was a small race event with about 125 half marathoners. They also held a 5k & 10k event alongside the half marathon. Since it was a small event, there was no race expo, we just had to arrive about an hour early to get our race bib and a timing chip to attach to the shoe.
