Capital City 1/2 Marathon '18
By Tristan


It's been a while since I raced... last September. Winter, like usual, was mostly all just easy runs, with occasional long-ish runs. But early in 2018 I started devising a plan to rock this half marathon that was April 28th. For the first time ever I was debating following a real training plan. Well ok, I did debate such a thing once before, but quickly dismissed as I'd never be able to follow it with my hectic schedule.

After several runs in wet conditions they fell apart so I bought a pair of Xero Genesis. On cold days I wore wool socks and would push the sock between the toe for the toe strap. I had no issues with chaffing.

Since this marathon had about 14 miles or so on gravel I wore the Xero Shoes for the marathon. This was my first marathon not being completely barefoot.

The marathon was on April 22 hence the title of the thread. For reference regarding the pacer, Boston was 6 days before my marathon.
