Hershey 1/2 Marathon

Hershey 1/2 Marathon
Hershey, PA

Another weekend in Hershey.  The Bugeys and The Grahams went up to the park on Saturday, picked up our race bibs, and took the kids over to Chocolate World.  After that, we went straight over to the park for a few hours.

Unfortunately, it started to rain around 5:30pm, and we had to cut our evening short.  Thats ok though, we got to go back to the hotel pool for awhile where all the kids had a blast.

The race was at 7:30 the next morning.  I really enjoy this course, because you get to run through the park between miles 3-4.  After that, its a bunch of rolling hills.  You can pretty much always see the Kissing Tower in the park from where you are on the course, so you always have a general idea of how far away you are from the finish.

While it wasn't my best run (in fact, quite the opposite for a half), I really enjoyed it.  I went in with every intention of just taking my time and having fun.  Tommy and Krissy probably finished about 30 minutes before me, and then they had to wait around for me to finish.

Awesome finisher medal.

We then took the kids over to The Harvest Festival in West Goshen Park

Healthy Kids Running Series - Week #5

Health Kids Running Series - Race #5
Rustin High School

The final race of the series.  After the boys did their 1/4 mile, the parents were challenged to run a mile.
It was fun to do a run where my boys were cheering me on.  Nathan got to see that it is ok to finish in the back of the pack, because thats how most of Bugeys run.
