Notable moments of the Historic Half Marathon in Fredericksburg VA

  • when the temperatures are hot and humid AND it is raining, it is still hot and humid
  • 10,000 runners + NO wave start is mass chaos at the beginning of the run
  • the run began with a military prayer
  • historic downtown Fredericksburg seemed like a good place to meander
  • I meandered and enjoyed some jazz music along the way
  • one man ran 13.1 miles backwards
  • I barely passed the backwards running man.
  • long slow distance running = fat burn
  • I burned A LOT of fat!
  • canned fruit was served at the finish line
  • I didn’t care and ate it anyway!
  • a very nice marine placed my finisher medal over my head
  • the highlight of the run!
