Mercer Island Half marathon 2009 report

9am, Mercer Island, WA
Temperature: 46F, Cloudy

MI:
- Well organized
- Expensive for a half marathon ($60) with no medals
- Scenic but hilly course
- Local Seattle area race
- Mile markers are incorrect
- Only water and no sports drink on course. I don't care but the for $60...
- Finish food was iffy





Before the run
- I had a DNS due to injury last year. Ran a 1:37 in 2007.
- Had a sore right quad and left calf going into the run

Run
- Chuck spotted me limbing during my warm-up and asked me to start a bit slower.
- Felt decent all through
- The "off" mile markers had me incorrectly optimistic. I had though I would get a PR.
- Saw Chuck at the finish line.
- Very nice post-race party at Dan's!
