Florida West Coast Half Marathon
13.1 Flat Miles in Florida Sunshine (and Snow)
It was 45 degrees at the starting line for yesterday's Florida West Coast Half in Sarasota, FL. And, there was a machine floating snow flurries over the starting area!
I had to wipe snowflakes off my phone.
Despite the chill, it was a gorgeous day for a race. The course was a flat and scenic tour of Nathan Benderson Park and the adjacent neighborhood. I'll definitely return to the park to see a rowing competition and run the trails again.
The final floating mile I looked forward to running during the half turned into a battle against the wind. I'd love another chance on a warm day to run across the lake.
The race was a smooth operation from start to finish. Thanks to Elite Events for a fun experience! I'll post a full review soon.
