Honoring our Heroes half marathon-Rolla, MO-November 19, 2017

Another double race weekend, but this time I tried the Half marathon first. I actually liked running a half marathon and then a full.  This race was on the way to the Oklahoma race.  Russell, Amy and I all stayed at a hotel near the race.
The course was very hilly.  It seemed like when one hill ended the next one started.  The last mile had pictures of soldiers with their names, rank, where they served and death date.  It was a very humbling mile.  After the race we were still able to get breakfast at our hotel because they served it until 12 noon. Then we traveled the 4 hours to Oklahoma to get to the running expo for the Route 66 marathon the next day.  Results are here
