The ODDyssey Half Marathon: Race Review

Why hello there! It’s a gloomy Tuesday here in Washington, DC, but I am hoping that a storm will help kill off some of the current humidity. Living in a swamp is no fun.   Sunday morning I was up bright and early around 5:20am. The night before, I laid out everything I needed: Tutu…
