2016 Tinker Bell Half Marathon - 5th Anniversary

It was a chilly start to the morning for this 5th anniversary race. Thankfully, the front of my corral was under an overpass so a group of us that met up during the 10K huddled together under the cover and geared up for the race.

It ended up being a pretty nice morning to be out for a run.

This was an exciting race for me because I am a Legacy Runner for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon.  That means that I was participating in my 5th race (every Tinker Bell race so far).  This entitled me to a special bib, a legacy runner gift, my name on a board at the expo and a special lanyard.  It was fun to see all the support for legacy runners!
