My friends and I all want to register for the half-marathon but we want to walk the entire course. Is it “socially acceptable” to walk the entire course?
Let’s face it, there’s nothing socially acceptable about running. That’s why people say things like, “Thirteen miles? I get tired just driving that far.” On the brighter side, the lack of social acceptance allows us runners to get away with wearing tape on our nipples and compression tights in restaurants (note: Sedona restaurants will be compression tight friendly during the marathon weekend). The Sedona Marathon races are designed for all levels of runners AND walkers. It is quite acceptable to walk the entire course for ANY of the distances. You and your friends should all register and walk the course together. I’m sure all of the giggling that occurs will leave you with a nice sore set of abs for the rest of the weekend.
