Stickboy and Beast Mode Matt decided to run the Syracuse Half Marathon. Founded in 2012, the Syracuse Half Marathon has become an extremely popular race here in Syracuse and it has sold out a few times in years past. The Syracuse Half is a fundraiser for the Shamrock Animal Fund and the Priscilla Mahar Animal Welfare Foundation which is awesome! Every race participants receive a very nice jacket with their entry fee and this is how Beast Mode Matt talked Stickboy into the race. Beast Mode Matt had ran the Syracuse Half before but this one the first time Stickboy had ever run it.
On the day of the race it was extremely cold so they both stayed in the OnCenter building as long as they could to stay warm. The Syracuse Half had another great showing because it took them both about 5 minutes to get to the starting line because there were so many people there which is wonderful for the city of Syracuse. The course takes you through the city of Syracuse which has some hills and it has a max elevation of 547 feet.
The wind just crushed Stickboy. There is a reason we call him Stickboy. As Stickboy hit State Street the last leg of the race and saw all the fans lined up in the cold to cheer the runners on it reminded Stickboy on why he runs. Stickboy ran as fast as my legs would to being so cold. Once Stickboy and Beast Mode Matt crossed that finished line they both felt a huge accomplishment!
Stickboy finished at the 2 hour and 20 minute mark taking 1,830th place overall and 167th place in my division. Beast Mode Matt had an extremely strong finish at 1 hour and 45 minutes taking 399th place overall and finished 46th is in his division! Congratulations to Stickboy and Beast Mode Matt on a great race!
