The half-marathon with strollers went okay. It was an overall fun experience but my neighbor suffered an injury en route so took away from the fun. Fortunately she is feeling much better now and we're hoping it was more of a minor injury than it seemed at the time! She ended up with a troublesome knee injury the last two miles so we had to walk it in. (Well, I walked and she limped. At least the stroller made a nice crutch.) Little guy did well- slept most of the way and when he did wake up, cooed on the downhills. (I felt like cooing too- the uphills were hard for me and the break on the downhills much needed.) He did have some tears near the end but they were short-lived.
We had lots of cheers and comments- the race was @ 70% women so I felt a bit like I was out in San Fran with you all! Probably my favorite part of the whole experience was driving my car to the start, passing by all the buses, with the "official race vehicle" pass they gave us on my dashboard. It was really nice to sit and nurse in a warm car while watching all the other runners huddle in the cold desert waiting for the start. We stepped out just minutes before starting, toasty warm with cozy little ones.
Post soon with details!
