Time – 55:06.02, official
Pace – 17:46
Place – full roster results not listed
Gender/Age Group – 10 out of 14

Full name of the half marathon is The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama Montgomery Half Marathon presented by Montgomery Multisport and the Enlisted Heritage 5K. That’s some good sponsorship acquisition.

The definition of last to start. Those Montgomery folks were fast. I passed way fewer people than I was expecting. I guess Sunday Strollers don’t come out at 35o.

Not flat. Up a long, gently sloping hill to the Alabama State Capitol, around the building, & back down the main drag. So, 55 minutes is a good time, considering. More sore than usual the next day, probably from being tight in the cold.

For someone who grew up in Federalist DC, the Ye Olde Roman architecture on the government and State Association buildings looked familiar. Did you know that Roman columns were painted? This upsets some people.

Finished in Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium, home of the Montgomery Biscuits. Hence the seating in the background of the medal pic at top. The grass footing was glorious.

  1. Cool. And not the temperature. With all the deep colors on mosaics inside the buildings, it makes sense they’d want to put some color on the columns.
    And that capitol building does look familiar….
