First Watch Sarasota Half and Relay

Posted on March 21, 2014 at 12:20 AM

Weather: Perfect 65 degrees and slightly breezy

Hotel:  .5 miles to the race start and finish.  La Quinta Inn and Suites on Tamiami Trail

Race start:  Sucked because you were corraled in one way with no way to get in from the sides of the long corral, so people were pushing and shoving to get up the where they needed to be.

Course:  The bridge (going both directions) was in the first 5 miles of the race so you can relax and get into a good grove after mile 5.  There were lots of water stops and one with some kind of gummy fuel.  Not many people out on the course for crowd support either.  A few nice people were handing out strawberries and grapes.  I was really hoping for some beer and bacon.   Going toward Ringling museum the course was on a slight incline which made my hip flexor on my right side sore and of course, we had to deal with that on the way back, but not as long of a distance.   

Finish:  Free food and beer and MY GOD the BLING is huge!  

Other notes:  This race is the last in the Florida Storm Series which promises and delives BIG BLING.  Also something to consider is the relay option.  it is cheaper if you and a friend split the registration and I thought that the relay sight was well organized and you both get the bling at the end!  I would highly suggest that if a Half Marathon is not your thing, but you still want the bling- do the relay!

The Breakfast House was crowded but a great option for breakfast- check out Yelp for reviews.

Carrie Underwood is my favourite country singer. She is young, beautiful and charming female in her 30s. Her voice takes me away from all troubles of this planet so I can enjoy my life and listen songs created by her mind. Now the singer is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for the whole 2019, up to the last day of October. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income. If you are a country music lover as me, then you must visit at least one of her concert. All tour dates are available at the Carrie Underwood tour Indianapolis. Visit the website and make yourself familiar with all powerful Carrie Underwood concerts in 2019!
