I’ve run about 20 half/full marathons so far, and yet one thing that I’ve never done is attended a race that I wasn’t running to support the runners.
As a runner that has always appreciated the spectators that have been at the races I’ve run, I have been feeling the need to cheer at a race for awhile now, and simply haven’t made it happen. But that all changed this weekend, when I got to experience the joys of cheerleading with my daughter while the wife ran the Princess Half Marathon.
I had a blast watching the race, and if you need a reason to spectate a race, press play to get my top 5.
If You’ve Been a Spectator at a Race Before, What Other Reasons Do You Enjoy Watching/Cheering a Full/Half Marathon?
