After finishing the hot Pittsburgh Marathon in May, I was itching to sign up for another race immediately. Knowing my heat tolerance though, I knew waiting for fall was the best choice.
Every marathon or half I found landed on the morning of or following a wedding. Though I could have done this, I really didn't want to rush things. I like to enjoy that getting ready and everything that comes along with weddings, and I want to enjoy race day without rushing off to another event.
I finally found the holy grail in a half marathon just north of home. Miraculously, it falls on a rare, completely free weekend! So I am signed up and ready to start training for the Buffalo Creek Half Marathon.
First Half Marathon = guaranteed PR. Hello downhill; it will be nice to see you!
