Unexpected things that happen during a half marathon

  1. The starting line is incredibly anti climatic- Uhhhh…shouldn’t we be running and not ambling forward like cows out to pastures?? LOL
  2. There are a lot more psychopaths who want to run 21 km than you’d think!
  3. Every sign makes you laugh or cry.
  4. Drinking from a cup while running is way harder than it looks.
  5. But crushing an empty cup in your fist and tossing it on the ground makes you feel like a BOSS!
  6. Seeing how many non-runners come out to watch the race humbles the heck out of you.
  7. The ‘runner’s high’ is a completely real thing.
  8. But unfortunately, so is ‘hitting the wall’.
  9. As tired as you feel after 21 km, the last 100 metres will give you new life.
  10. Wearing a medal sounds cheesy, but it’s actually the coolest feeling in the world!
