1812 Challenge and Half Marathon
This past weekend I traveled up to northern NYS to visit family, and run in a race for the first time in New York since I was in high school (that'd be about 20 years ago). I was really thinking about cancelling, or dropping to the half since my training had not really prepared me to race 18+ miles this year. I had a good base, and a couple good races earlier this year, and with such a long drive to go there I figured I might as well just attempt the whole thing even if I had to go easy.

Using huaraches for the marathon was the best option for me at my level ... but a gal from India did the half marathon barefoot and a Costa Rican did the marathon barefoot.
