This was my 2nd half last year, and the weather was horrible! Thankfully, it was perfect this time. Before the race I got to meet Dawn, who is just the cutest thing ever. This was her 16th half THIS YEAR! I also got to run with Amy again, which was awesome. This was her first half.
We stayed warm in the lobby of the Galt House for awhile, before heading out to the race. I just love having friends to run races with. It makes such a difference!
|It was a little windy! I really regretted not wearing a headband!|
That really worked well for me. I had no problems at all, I felt great the whole time! I took an Island Boost at mile 5 and then a GU at mile 10.
My time last year was 2:25, so I was really hoping to PR and beat that time. But I ended up with 2:28. At least it's under 2:30, so I am very happy with that!!
|These girls did awesome too! They both beat me.|
|Beer always tastes better after a race!|
I'll share more about my trail run tomorrow!
