The Inaugural Trail of Two Cities Half and Full Marathon was a success. It started off with a Health and Fitness Expo at a church convention center in Fresno, California. There were lots of fitness and nutrition books. In addition, many of the runners got a chance to meet Kathrine Switzer, a famed women's marathoner (see my picture).
The half marathon (13.1 mile) course was very flat, which is great for beginners. At about mile 8, I started cramping. I must admit, I failed to drink lots of water prior to the event. However, I did not want to stop. Like the Energizer Bunny, I kept running and running.
