Baltimore Half 2012

Running around  the lake
Me at the finish!
Place: 2492/10248 Bib # 30556 Finishing Time: 1:56

After running countless races for myself, I decided to run for others. I signed up to join the "Every Yard for Yeardley" (in memory of Yeardley Love) team and helped my good friend Zach train for the Baltimore Half. In all of the races I've run, I must admit, helping someone train and watching them complete their first half marathon is probably the biggest sense of accomplishment I have ever had. It's pretty inspiring! I've run the Baltimore Half a few times before, and this year was my best time (PR of 1:56) yet!

Overall rating? A
Main complaints? None
Favorite parts? The premium!
Communication before the race? A
Expo? They switched back to M&T Bank Stadium this year - I prefer M&T over the Convention Center. Everything flows much better and you don't feel like you're lost in an ocean
Premium? A. Under Armour Cold Black tee (I'm wearing it in the above pics)
Water Stops/Aid Stations? A . Definitely frequent enough and well stocked! Great crowds
Finisher's Medal? A, probably one of my favorite ones
Finisher's Festival? A, even though it was crowded just like years past. I've come to accept the fact that it will only ever have one exit.
Would I run this race again/recommend it to anyone? YES Defeinitely.
