I don’t know what to say.

The race was awesome.  The course was hot and hilly, and I was a little scared going in because of how ill I had been with my allergies all week, but I crushed it.  It was no PR, but the race was crushed.

And then after the race, a cloud kind of drifted over our post-race celebrations, after we’d grabbed our free beer and headed out to a local bar (with terrible service) to grab some more non-free beers. After checking Twitter, our friend Jess found out that WRAL, the presenting sponsor, was reporting that two people had died at the race.

I don’t want to be funny, or silly, or crazy right now – I want to extend my deepest and most sincere condolences to the families of the two men who lost their lives today. I will catch you all soon ❤

    1. Thank you! It was definitely warm and challenging. I so feel for these men, and I really wish their families peace and healing.

      But separate of that tragic loss, the race itself was really wonderful.

      1. Wow! I’ve run the RunRaleigh Half a few times, and the City of Oaks Full. This course was the toughest, by far. Still loved it though. I think they saved the toughest sections for the times when a runner feels most vulnerable. I managed to run sub 4, so I am happy.
