On the bright side, there is a 10k the same day as the half marathon that I can run instead. Charlotte RaceFest is on Saturday April 16th at 7:30am. From the website:
"Entering its tenth year, the Charlotte RaceFest Half Marathon and 10K will once again take place in the wonderful SouthPark area of Charlotte, NC. Thanks to the support of our participants and sponsors, the Charlotte RaceFest at SouthPark has become a main feature of the spring running circuit in the Southeast region."
I've noticed that prices of races up in Charlotte are slightly higher than those back in Orlando. Sigh. It's hard to financially keep up with running as a hobby. Between new sneakers, running accessories, races, it all keeps adding up.
I have until March 18th to make my final decision, it's definitely leaning towards postponing the half marathon until later this year when I've trained more and am prepared for the lengthy distance.
