The Day of the Race
Sunday, February 16 was surprisingly a dry day with some moisture from the night before. I expected to be pelted by fierce winds and rain, but the running Gods took pity on us. Just a week ago we had our version of Snowmeggedon 2014. I was very thankful that this race was this weekend instead of the previous. The half marathon course take place on a beautiful country road course in Hillsboro, OR starting and ending at Liberty High School track/stadium.
My trusty running buddy Bola also dressed in full Wonder Woman regalia and I went about our race and conquered the dreaded “Heartbreaker Hill”. There was a prize for top challenger who can run the fastest in the 1-mile timed section in the middle of Heart Breaker Hill which would not be me dressed in this costume.
We both finished our half in a decent time with some fans cheering us on when we entered the Liberty High School stadium. I would definitely do this race again next year and of course the oversized heart medal makes the finish that much sweater.
