Run Hard Columbia Half Marathon 2019

The first race of 2019! My last race was the Cold Winter’s Day 5k at the end of 2018 so it’s been a long 2 months without any races on the calendar. I don’t really mind that – starting in April, I’ll be racing at least once a month all the way until October so […]
