Brian and I decided to ride our horses on Saturday the 23rd before we left for Ohio, it was about 21 degrees and we dressed well for it and had a great ride, came home showered and headed out to Strongsville, Ohio at about 1pm. This was a 9am race so I didn't care if we got there late. I had booked a pet friendly hotel so we took the dogs and headed out. The drive was uneventful, but we hit a lot of snow squalls that were lake effect in nature and it was very cold and wind
This was my very first trip to Tennessee, I believe, it was certainly my first time in Nashville. We took Friday off and decided to leave early in the morning so we could pick up my race packet on the north side of the city Friday instead of on race day, it can get kind of crazy and stressful! We left at 6:30am and it was just my crew of one, Brian and me. Jenn decided that she wasn't ready for a 1/2 marathon yet and this one was a little pricey, so she took a pass on it.
