Windy Weather Delayed the Races for 2+ Hours
Two big weather fronts threatened the Key West Half and 5K on Sunday morning. Race officials delayed the race to keep everyone safe. After 2+ hours, the race started as planned.
Everyone I've seen or heard from said it was a fun event. Great tour around the island, musical street party, happy volunteers, and blingy bling. This year's medals were a mermaid for the half marathoners and a cute-as-ever 5K medal.

First Place Award is an Engraved Conch Shell
On #MedalMonday I was checking out everyone's medals. This one blew my mind. I'll never be fast enough to win a race, but if I was — I would set my sights on the Key West Half. How cool is this conch shell award from the Conch Republic?
Congrats to Real Life Runner Kevin Brown, on his first place men's division win! The photo below is from his Instagram account if you want a closer look.
