Help us celebrate our Medal Monday Memories. For our first week check out Gone For a Run team member, Rachel’s, #MedalMondayMemories 2013 Hartford Half Marathon.
1) Why do you love this medal? This was the Hartford Half Marathon’s 28th year anniversary. I knew when I signed up Hartford always has great medals, and this psychedelic Beatles inspired medal design definitely did not disappoint.
2) What was special about this race? I signed up to run my first Hartford race 5 years ago because my boyfriend, at the time, lived close to the starting line. 5 years later, we were celebrating our new marriage and I haven’t missed a Hartford marathon weekend since.
3) What motivated you to run this race? My wedding was a week before this race, and I wanted to stay in shape for my big day. It was also a great tune up race for the Marine Corp Marathon.
