Bird-in-Hand Half Marathon 2016

September 10, 2016 was the Bird-in-Hand Half Marathon in a town by the same name in Lancaster County, PA.

County towns with names like Intercourse, Blue Ball, Paradise, Fertility and Virginville surround some lovely rolling farmland in Pennsyltucky.

Out of respect to the Amish families, we didn’t take many photos at the race. Amish believe that photographs in which they can be recognized violate the Biblical commandment, “Thou shalt not make unto thyself a graven image.” They want to be remembered by the lives they lived and the examples they left, not by physical appearance. Giving a listen to our podcast is the best way to get the picture of what a half marathon supported by the Amish community is all about.

Hellbender Half Marathon 2016

After a long hiatus, I produced a quick race recap of the 2016 Hellbender Half Marathon that Jim and I ran this past weekend. We also ran Hellbender Half in 2014 so it was interesting to compare the differences in our runs and how the race has changed.
