Road Trip to Buffalo, in Photos
Along with my friends Angela, Annie, and Marlin, I headed off to the Buffalo area at the end of June to run in the Rapid Running Buffalo Half Marathon. Oh, wait — Rapid Running
canceled postponed their event. Fortunately, the Town of Orchard Park, the Buffalo Bills, Eclipse Multi-Sport, and the Buffalo Niagara Sports Commission weren’t interested in letting a shady company an unfortunate situation get in the way of a great event, and held their own half marathon and 5k: the 50 Yard Finish.
Seriously, folks, stay away from events organized (and I use the term loosely) by Rapid Running. To claim that you’re postponing an event — 9 days before the event, mind you — because you have better-than-expected registration is not really believable.
While the race was very well organized (especially given the six days in which the organizers had to pull it together), I didn’t have a very good run, finishing in 2:13:49. It’s not my best time, but it really wasn’t my day. Nonetheless, the trip was a blast, and it’s time to share a few photos to prove it….
