Well, I must be a glutton for punishment because for the 2nd year in a row I have decided to take on the Hospital Hill Half Marathon in Kansas City, Missouri. Last year this race was a time of firsts; first time visiting Kansas City, first time racing in Missouri and first time having a race give you pajama bottoms instead of t-shirts and pancakes as post-race food. Outside of that, the course itself was VERY challenging and hilly but it had pretty good crowd support. My home state of NC is hilly but I believe Kansas City has North Carolina beat as far as hills, or at least as it comes to steep hills.
Outside of race activities, Kansas City, holds a lot of history. I was able to visit the African American Jazz museum, as well as, the Negro league baseball museum while I was there. I have friends there so, we all were even able to take in a Kansas City Royals game. Fun times, and I can wait to go back and tackle the “HILL” in June 2018. Stay tuned for discount codes for the race, in case you want to join me.
