Race Report – Calgary Police Half Marathon

Josh has an entertaining and detailed race report on his blog which is definitely worth reading. For your convenience however, I will provide a summary:

The weather was miserable, but Josh was tough and wore shorts anyway.
He went out too hard.
He had to battle physically and mentally to keep his effort up.
He had to adjust his expectations and goals mid-race.
He cramped up.
He chose to walk briefly on two occasions.

He placed 38th out of 1829 overall.

He placed 4th out of 113 men under 30.
He nearly puked on the woman who gave him his medal.

He raised $60 for a worthy cause.

Full results.
