We knew that we had to sign up as soon as registration opened. Last year the 2000 spots for the First Half (a half marathon in Vancouver) sold out in five hours apparently.
I woke up a couple of times last night, reminding myself to sign up for this race as soon as I woke up. When I went to the online race registration at 7.15am, it was 73% full. Tim and I both registered as quick as we could. The race was sold out just before 8:30am, after opening at 5am.
Pfew, very lucky!
