I can’t tell you how excited I was to get into the DC Nike Women’s Half! The Nike Half Marathon was a race that I had wanted to run for a while but it was out in San Francisco and I’m not a fan of hills or the cost of traveling to the west coast. So when Nike announced that it was organizing a race in Washington, DC, I figured it was perfect for me. I loved the idea of being a part of an inaugural race!
The weekend started 5:00AM Friday morning. I decided I would be early for a change so that I could have breakfast and relax in the airport lounge before boarding my flight. Once I landed in DC, I headed straight to the hotel, checked in and was off to Georgetown.
