Fort Ebey Kettles Half Marathon

Ran and hiked the Fort Ebey Kettles Half Marathon out on Whidbey Island yesterday. This is a terrific rolling course. The race works out perfect for me, being about 40 minutes from home. The views off the bluffs of Whidbey Island towards the Olympics are as good as anywhere.

We had wind all day, but it never really rained. Appreciated the later start--actually got to have a cup of coffee at home before starting out.

Rich, Linda, and Jamie were there. Rich and Linda ran the full; Jamie ran the half.

Step by step, trying to get back into shape. My third event in the last five or six weeks. Hoping I can get my legs swinging the way they need to.
