Quito Half Marathon
IAAF/aims certified course. About a 400m drop...with a 2 km uphill at the finish. Starts in Quito at 2800m and finishes on the Equator. Maria ran 1:20:05...good for 4th and 300usd (last year she ran 1:30) Dad and Ramon in the baby jogger, ran 2:07 ish....The grandparents looked after Carla. She's in the terrible 2's at the moment and I didn't think she would handle over 2 hours in the double jogger very well. Last year I ran 2:20 with both kids.
A cool, cloudy 7 degrees at the start. Quito is full of great races if anyone wants to come for a running holiday. Don't know who took the photo....Maria rescuing Ramon from Dad at the finish.
