I’m not even the fastest Old Guy!

Horsetooth Half Race Recap

Two weekends ago, I ran the Horsetooth Half marathon in Ft. Collins, Colorado. I had originally planned to run the Platte River Half the weekend before which would have been a more PR-friendly course, but the appeal of a local race and a finish line at the New Belgium brewery (yum!) made me switch to Horsetooth which was one weekend later. 769 more words
