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. Still the same schedule is an issue, but over the years I've managed my time a little better and also have become a much better runner. Another big factor, this time attempting to train I am single.

Slightly Belated Race Report
By Macdiver

A little background first. I chose to run a spring marathon this year to force myself to run through the winter. Normally I take off from November till March-ish. To run in the cold I was using a pair of moccasins (really $20 bed room slippers) that were some sort of leather with rubber glued to the bottom. 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.

Some notes, this report is a copy...
