What a wonderful race the Philadelphia Distance Run was this year! It was as close to a perfect half-marathon as I hope to see.
With the new wave start, I was able to run freely from the beginning. The course went right past the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The weather was nearly ideal — I want to say high fifties and low sixties, light wind, low humidity, a big blue sky and a friendly sun. The food at the end was plentiful, varied, and good. The organizers even took the T-shirts to a new level.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
