When I was contacted a few months ago about being one of the official bloggers for the Runner's World Half Marathon race weekend, I was in shock. I am not that big of a blogger, I have a small following, and I am a pretty average runner/triathlete.
But, as Bart Yasso said yesterday, he makes everyone feel like Shalane Flanagan at his races! He, along with all of the other Runner's World staff, made me and everyone else feel like we were the winners of the race. We were so well taken care of this weekend, including Mike who was able to attend a few of the events for the bloggers.
I haven't quite decided how I am going to approach sharing all of the details from this weekend, including a HUGE PR race recap, but I hope that I can do it justice. Everyone should be able to experience what I was able to experience this weekend (and I didn't even do it all since I missed the Thursday evening events).
THANK YOU Runner's World for making us feel so welcome this weekend and for an amazing race! We will be back in the future!
Disclosure: I was provided a free race entry and lodging as part of the bloggers' program through Runner's World. I was not compensated in any other way and the opinions in this post are, as always, my own.
