|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.
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.
