Rocky Mountain Soap Half Marathon
We had some fabulous weather this weekend so it made the Rocky Mountain Soap Womens Half Marathon in Canmore an even more enjoyable experience. This is the 4th year that this weekend event has taken place and it offers a 6km, 12 km and half marathon so appeals to all type of runners from all over Alberta. It's a hilly course so everyone gets to have a good workout regardless of which distance they've chosen and the hill work at the finishing line makes everyone relieved to be done!
It's great to see so many women out there having fun, giving themselves a challenge and supporting each other. Plus it's a great fundraiser towards Breast Cancer so everyone wins! Rocky Mountain Soap is made here in the Canadian Rockies, is all natural and smells divine! If you have a chance to come across it, I highly recommend it.
This was my second half marathon and I managed a time of 1:56 so was pretty happy with that. I think I'm starting to like this distance!!
