The Mission Inn Half 2015

Date: 11/08/15

Half Marathon #106

Race Name: Mission Inn Half Marathon

Location: Riverside, CA

The start! 

This was my second time running this half marathon. This is a local race that is not over-priced and is well organized. You start and end in downtown Riverside, but a lot of the course is an out and back run on a bike path with little to keep the mind distracted. It is also a bit hilly, so get ready for some incline training if you sign up next year.

It was below 50 degrees at 7:00am when the race started, my arms and hands were numb! Yes I was born and raised in sunny Southern California! About 30 minutes into the race the sun warmed things up enough to make the temperature tolerable :-)

I will gladly sign up for this race any year my calendar allows...

 

My gear for the race!

A big thumbs up for that runner carrying her daughter on her back!
