Race Recap By Zac Tharp
My wife and I ran the Nationwide Columbus half marathon yesterday. It was an amazing race, with thousands of runners, tons of fans lining the streets cheering you on (I only remember one short stretch of the race that didn’t have fans helping to cheer you on and keep running hard), and a great cause (since 2012, 10 million dollars has been raised for life saving research and care)!
The race started on time with the Columbus mayor attending, welcoming all the runners back to Columbus & all the runners were excited to be back since last years race was cancelled, two fireworks shows as it was coming light, and a great post race area with lots of snacks! The course for the half marathon had two decent hills at the 1 mile mark and 13 mile mark, but otherwise it was pretty flat.
I’m excited to announce I accomplished setting a new half marathon PR yesterday in Columbus!
I would highly recommend Team ER members to check out the Nationwide Marathon / Half Marathon in Columbus next year!
