within minutes of the decision to postpone the boston build-up 25k, emmy came up with this incredible alternative: the colchester half marathon. this is a brief description from the race flyer:
"13.1 hilly miles, there will be three water & Gatorade stations, professional timing, mile marks painted on the road, volunteers on every turn, lots of hills, dirt roads, cows, rural scenery, and more hills."
the course was hilly, but the high winds were the real challenge. i finished in 1:37:44 and emmy finished in 1:40.
here is my race report; and here are the results from coolrunning.
