I hate road races!!

OK, so everyone who has ever been within ear shot of my whining on the trails, knows that I hate road races. So why do I sign up for the Niagara 1/2 Marathon when I know it is 99.99% pavement and the temperatures are always hot and humid. 
Well for those that can be swayed with bull shit its because the course is scenic and relatively flat. But those in the know, will guess correctly that I would do a race anywhere when there is free beer at the end. Because we all know beer tastes best when free, cold and served at 10:00 am.

I also got to witness the Connor boys at work.Steve did the 1/2 Marathon and finished in 1:28.18 taking 8th overall and first in age group.
And I finished just behind Steve. (as did a hundred others that were blocking me all the way)

Pat pictured here, marked this as his 50th marathon, with a finish time of 3:57.50. But I was well ahead of him at the beer table.
