In Episode 18 of the WALK Magazine Podcast, my friend Deb and I talk about doing two half marathons in one week — again.
This year was the 20th anniversary of the Air Force Marathon. Because this is the only marathon I have ever entered, it’s special to me and I wanted to be there for the celebration even if I don’t do full marathons any more.
The Adams County Run with the Amish Half Marathon was so fun last year, we wanted to do it again the next week. (Plus we heard a rumor the race would not be held in 2017, so this might be our last chance.) Not only are the medals and finisher awards unique, this race gives equal prizes to fast walkers. I seriously wanted to win one of the great walker prizes.
In this episode we discuss the races, how we trained, how the weather affected our training and the race days, and how this year’s races were so different from last year’s races.
