Here are a few personal accounts:
I came in the BMO Half Marathon with low expectations. I really just wanted to soak up the experience and try to have some fun. It was a beautiful day for a run and I was pleased with my overall time of 1:38. I was amazed with how fast some people are and how effortlessly they made it look. It was truly amazing to watch. I can’t say I was jealous of the people who ran the full marathon but I think it is likely I will participate in another half marathon in the future.
Kate and I had a great day cruising along on a hot day! As is usual for most marathons the last 8 km or so was a bit of a grind, but keeping in mind that we were almost done got us through! It is always amazing to see the different ages, body types and fitness levels running out there—congrats to everyone who set his goal and achieved it!
