The prices are $50 for the 10-miler & $30 for the 5K for another two days (the prices go up on 12/1, I think), so if you act now, you could get the 10-miler for $40 or the 5K for $25, which is pretty reasonable. No, it's not a half, but it's the closest I'll get to one until after NVM, and I'm actually kind of excited about running a 10-mile race for the first time.
I'm not sure yet what my goals will be, but most likely it will be either 1) run at marathon pace / effort just for the practice, or 2) actually try to run it as fast as possible, knowing I won't *really* be in race shape for that distance, just to see what happens. We'll see when we get closer.
If you're in the Bay Area, come run with us!!!
