You will see many "runner fashion faux pas" but an old race shirt should be just fine.

Hi! Safe travels! Where do you do most of your running? Just curious. I love the Olentangy trail, but it's getting a little old. Would like to run some other trails- maybe westerville/ polaris area? I live by Alum Creek, so that'd be more convenient.

Good luck on your half!!

Thanks! We do the bulk around our neighborhood (a series of apartment complexes) actually! Not ideal, but hey. Our long runs were either done as races (5k, 5mi, 10k, 15k) or we did one on the Olentangy River Trail and one on the Hilliard rail trail. I really liked the rail trail, actually... Downside is it's only six miles (I think) so not great for full training. We did a 12.5 run there - to the end, back, and through the parking lot to get the last bit in lol. It was very very quiet towards the end, and a nice change of pace!

Good luck on your race this weekend!

Eta: Westerville has a really nice network of trails, we plan to try those out sometime, too, but it just hasn't happened yet!

AAAHHHAAAA! Okay that is funny! The thing about a Disney race is this: you don't know who or what you will see out there!

Last year in the half I saw Santa Clause! I ran beside Santa for a while and he gave my brother a Santa Clause coin!

Wear your T-shirt or tech shirts if you want! I am in the process of making all my t-shirts from races (ok only the half and longer races now, but the rest are in pile to cut up) into a quilt because the shirts were just taking way to much space in my drawers and I don't have much chance to wear them anymore. I have a few favorite t-shirts I'll continue to wear but the long sleeve tech shirts from races I almost never wear anymore. If I save 2 I have plenty. The one shirt I don't know what to do with is a long sleeve tech shirt from the first DL half that I never got to run because my DD got married that weekend. I never wear it, and don't want to quilt it. I could donate it but that doesn't really seem right either. So it sits in the drawer- I can wear it for outdoor runs that I'd never take my fleece off for I guess- then no one ever sees the logo on it and it's just a white tech shirt.

I was actually on their website looking at the earlier flights yesterday but I forgot you can no longer see Wanna Get Away fares so I am unsure if it would be a ton more $ to change. We originally booked for $80/each way so that's why the later flight. We are doing 2 nights at SSR and then 5 at AKV Kidani...yay for wonderful grandma's and kid free vacations!

Showing up at the airport and asking to standby to an earlier flight with Southwest is permitted, but requires an upgrade to Anytime fares. They are rather unmovable on this point. So at this late date, I would count on flying what you have booked!

Hello CMH runners!

The Olentangy trail is good. I also like the trail system in Westerville. Check out also all of the Metroparks. Finally, Cruz91, since you live near Alum Creek, the Alum Creek State Park has a number of trails. There is a nice one that starts along the beach area. And then it goes through a trail heading south to the below dam area and on across the dam. And there is a killer set of steps that go from the below dam park area to the top of the dam that you could incorporate in your run. That will make you stronger for sure!

Cool so Saturday I'll wear my purple Baltimore Half Marathon shirt. It'll be my way of cheering on the Ravens that day.

The hills/ stairs are why I AVOID Alum Creek trails, not something that would attract me to it! ;-) I have ridden my mountain bike in the park quite a bit though.
