This was the first year for the city of Gilbert to host their own half marathon. This year, a half marathon and 10k course were available; next year, a full marathon will be added.
Chantel and I have been running together since June, and are signed up to run the Tinkerbell Half in Disneyland this May. But I signed up for this one on a whim, and Chantel signed up to join me at the last minute. Thank goodness she did – I never would have been able to maintain our pace without her there! It was Chantel’s first half marathon ever, and her husband & kids, and Logan and Brandon all came out to cheer us on. We achieved a new PR for both of us – 1:57:58!
