Capital City River Run~ East Lansing, MI~ 9/30/2007

This pic is from my very first race EVER, a half-marathon (bottom left- 1591- that’s me).  I was training for the Detroit Marathon and my sister said, “There is a half marathon in East Lansing this weekend.  Maybe you should come run it to get the feel of running with a bunch of people.”  I thought, that’s a pretty good idea- so signed up.  I LOVED IT!!!  The half is definitely my favorite.  I feel that I can run it somewhat competitively and not feel like death at the end :)

I remember a lot from this race, including being a mile from the finish and passing… ELVIS?!?!  Haha!!!

I remember thinking, NO WAY am I going to let ELVIS beat me! Still cracks me up to think about!  I ran it in 1:44, placing 8th in my age group, which I was pretty darn proud of for my first race.

I would definitely recommend this race to anyone.  It was a great setup: Great scenery, lots of volunteers, lots of aid stations, lots of post-race snacks and just a very enjoyable race.  The expo wasn’t bad either.  Any expo with a free 20 minute massage station is right up my alley.  Yes, I am massage obsessed  :)
