I get on this frustrating bandwagon at this time each year. I look around for a half marathon to finish in Montana’s short summer. I have picked three half marathons that I would like to do this year. Now I am busy trying to get answers from the race staff on if they support walkers. I finish a half marathon in roughly four hours and some. Most race organizers want to pack up and go home in about 3 1/2 hours. I learned from another plus-size athlete not to let races take your entry fee and then not treat you with respect by rolling up and going home before you finish. Ask first and if they don’t plan to be here when you cross the finish, don’t give them your money.
I have finished a half marathon before. I have a personal best I am trying to improve upon. Not many people can say that. It puts me in company of an elite group. I am worth
Keep watch as I work may way through this mine field of trying to finish one…maybe two or three half marathons this summer.
