This was Care’s goal race while being pregnant. Early on, she had planned to run a full marathon, but her lack of energy and no marathons close by nixed that idea. So, we signed up for this 1/2 mary that travels through uptown Charlotte a couple months ago. We knew it would be a hilly course (what isn’t in CLT except for the Runway 5k?), but decided Care could just wear a heart rate monitor and walk some of the hills.
There were over 700 people there for the race, which included a 5k option as well as a half-marathon relay. The weather was absolutely perfect, meaning no clouds and temps in the 50s. For the record, Care says the course isn’t pregnancy-friendly (we only saw one porta-potty).
