Bellingham Bay 1/2 Marathon Route Finalized

Does this seem hilly to anyone or is it just me?

**This post had a link to the marathon and 1/2 marathon route that is now out of date, so I removed it**

For the record, it was hilly but I would do the race again. Very well organized community event.

Should be easy…on a moped.

I live in Bellingham and unfortunately there is no way around hills. The course this year is surprisingly LESS hilly than the course has been in the past years. :)

The biggest "hill" isn't even 100 feet. That's not much at all.

Sorry it's you!

You'll be fine!

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
