Race Recap: OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon 2018

This is the second race recap I owed you guys…

April 28th, I ran the OhioHealth Capital City Half Marathon. I was already in Chicago for work, so I took the quick flight over to squeeze in my 4th Half Marathon and 3rd state (since DC technically doesn’t count).

My FlatRunner from the night before.

The expo was pretty small, but it was quick to check in and pick up our bibs/swag.

I tried to meet up with some runners from my Mama Docs Run This group before the run, but we missed each other. So I took a solo shot at the start line!

I stayed in one of the race hotels, so getting to the race was easy in the morning (just a few blocks). The course itself wasn’t too difficult (even for a novice runner like me), and I enjoyed running through the neighborhoods of Columbus.

I was able to run-walk with the 3:20 pacers (1-minute run, 1-minute walk) for 10 miles until my foot hurt too much. Then I walked much of the last 3 miles, which slowed me down of course.

The post-race party was a nice touch — champagne for each runner, as well as pizza from Papa John’s! Since it was close to the end of the party when I finished, I got to take an entire cheese pie with me!

It was great to just walk a block back to the race hotel on these tired legs, and enjoy my pizza during a nice, long soak before heading to the airport to fly to Boston for a meeting.
