Race Report: Skeleton Skamper Half-Marathon…Marathon

As I wrote before, since the training plan called for my last real long run to be 26 miles, I opted to amuse myself by doing a local half-marathon twice. I even got a cheap entry fee into the race, through one of those group discount specials sites, so it looked like a really good …
