This race was not on my schedule, but I hadn't done any half's this year, and I really, really needed (wanted) to! I found this one in Carmel, IN, where I have friends that live, so I got to stay with them Friday night.
Packet pick up wasn't until Saturday morning. I decided to wait and register that morning, rather than online, so I wouldn't have to pay extra fees. I got to the church where the race started, about 45 minutes before the start and got registered and all ready to go.
My friend Kim told me she would be running it too (yay!!), so we met up and hung out until the start.
I felt great the whole race. Although around mile 11 I was starting to feel like ok, does this ever end!
I told you guys how I was a little worried about the 3 hour cutoff time, just because my running hasn't been that great lately. My average half time lately is 2:45, so I was hoping to be at that, or preferably quicker!
My finish time was 2:44.
I found Kim and we headed out to Pizzaology for lunch.
|Best pizza and beer ever!!|
This is probably my most boring race report ever, since it was a pretty boring race. (Mostly ran through neighborhoods.)
But hanging out with my sweet Kim, and the friends I stayed with was wonderful.
And of course I love to run, even the boring runs!
Who else ran or raced this weekend?
