I ran my third Copenhagen Half Marathon this past Sunday. - What a race! What started with blue skies and sun turned into thunderclouds, rain, lightning and hail by the time I made it to the finish line.
The final dash to the finish line was a slog in icy ankle deep water mixed with hail since the roads were flooded. This video captures what it was like: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZJDM63FPMt/

The water was deepest in the streets, so runners were crammed onto the sidewalks which were slightly less flooded. At some point, after I finished, two runners were injured due to lightening strike and a fallen electrical cable, so the race was immediately shut down for safety.
However, despite all the chaos at the end, I still managed to run a PR. My official time is listed as 1:46:24 (corrected from an earlier time I was given). I'm so happy. And so hungry.
