Run for Ryan House Half Marathon 2

Run For Ryan House Half Marathon – Weekend Workout

Ah the Run for Ryan House Half Marathon.  This is a great race if you live in the North Scottsdale area and need a little weekend workout.  Its a fun race with lots of hills.  There is nothing too special about it but its convenient and frankly, I like convenient!

Five Fun Facts about Arizona:

  1. Arizona is the 6th largest state in the U.S.
  2. Arizona’s economy is split into the 5 C’s: Cattle, Copper, Citrus, Cotton and Climate.
  3. The 13 stripes on the Arizona flag represent the original 13 colonies of the U.S.
  4. If you cut down a Saguaro cactus in Arizona, you could go to prison for up to a year.
  5. Arizona Roadrunners can run up to 17 mph.  Turns out, this is faster than white lightning.

Running with Amy & Stacey

Somehow, someway my wife and my sister-in-law decided to run the 5K with me.  I am not 100% sure but I believe they stuck around after the race and waited for me to finish so we could all go get a bite to eat.  It’s always nice to have a ride home I guess.

I believe I mentioned this in a previous post about the Run for Ryan House Half Marathon.  It’s hard to get excited about running a race on the same exact paths you train multiple times a week.  I just happen to run every section of this half marathon for my training runs so I know every bump and grind.  It definitely takes some of the excitement out.

But, back to convenience.  I do love a race that is close to home, is NOT a point to point and has ample parking.  So, they got that going for them …. which is nice.
