Running a Half Marathon is a challenge and a half. Exponential satisfaction is the result. You train hard, and for the love of running and all its benefits, your life will never be the same after your journey. Just imagine the feeling…the energy … the people … the mountains guiding you through the cityscape … the ocean tides tirelessly encouraging you to continue on or step-it-up. Why? Because it is about passion, strength, determination, health, fitness and living. We admire your courage; you’ve just taken the first step in the right direction.
