A month ago, my daughter (Naya), my sister (Betsy), and I ran the Yosemite Half Marathon. It was the 1st half-marathon for my daughter (she did wonderfully), and the 4th half-marathon for my sister, and my 7th half-marathon. My sister and I had run the Yosemite Half Marathon last year (when it was in October), and we wanted to run it again.
This time, I ran a race for the first time with one of the Pick’n Run backpack prototypes….the first prototype. I have used the prototype on shorter, practice runs, but never in a race and not at the half marathon distance (13.1 miles).
I was able to pick up trash during the race, put it in the backpack, and then easily empty the trash at various trash locations, which tended to be at various mile markers. See pictures below of the race, and the backpack usage.
