Miser Mom Half Marathon!
I know you will have questions about this, so here are some of the answers.
Q: What makes the Miser Mom Half Marathon such a great Half Marathon for a group like ours?
A: Duh; the cost.
Q: What else makes the Miser Mom Half Marathon such a great Half Marathon compared to others?
A: Others are the first half of a marathon. The MMHM is the second half, which any marathoner will tell you is the tougher half. Do the MMHM, and you can brag that you finished a marathon (even if you didn't start it).
Q: Tell me about the swag.
A: FREE T-SHIRT to anyone who finds a t-shirt by the side of the road.
Q: Do I also get a free t-shirt if I find it behind the dryer? (Seriously, someone already asked me this).
Q: Are we going to train for this?
A: Yes, training (following the F.I.R.S.T. method) will start mid-August, with our first 6-mile training run on here., and some somewhat longer runs following that. More info on that
Q: Will there be age-category medals?
A: Not sure about the medals, but we've already approved an award of some kind for the first bicyclist born in May 1953.
Q: Other awards, too?
A: Give me time . . . I'm still thinking about this.
Q: Will this half-marathon end with a downhill run?
A: YESSSSS! (From Old Main to my home, so not super-steep, alas).
Q: Will you allow people to sit in lawn chairs a half-mile from the finish line to yell, "you're nearly there! keep going!".
Q: Will there be chocolate milk at the finish line?
A: Yes, and maybe bagels, too.
