Note: This is a mishmash of both the 2017 and 2019 races – Yes, it’s that good that we continue to go back every year possible!
With three half marathons behind me, and finding myself in the middle of training for my first marathon, I made the very last minute decision to sign up for the Wineglass Half Marathon with my friend Heather, aka Meatball, and her family.
It was so last minute in fact, that the race was already sold out and I was put on a wait list.
Their family has been running various distances at this race weekend for years, and assured me most people end up clearing the wait list, so I would likely make it in.
I knew absolutely nothing about this race other than “it was super fun, and you get glass medals at the end”. Um, okay. Sold!
I feel as though I should mention that I had already signed up for the Baltimore Half Marathon that was only 21 days later. Anyone who knows me now, knows I wouldn’t even bat an eye at this scenario currently, but back then, this might have been one of the dumbest things I have ever done.
