First Half Marathon Complete!

October 25, 2010

It was amazing!

I started slow and finished strong.  I had negative splits pretty much the whole race, even in the last hill on Temple street.  I probably could have started a little bit faster, but really, I wouldn’t change a thing.

I’m really happy with my race time too – it was even better than expected!

Money stuff:  We paid $12 and $10 for parking at the expo and at the race itself.  T bought a $35 stick…  Yeah, I don’t know, his friends have them and he We had $30 worth of delicious Thai food afterwords, then pizza ($20), but that wasn’t really marathon related.

    Congrats! I’m so impressed! I hope someday to run that far myself… But I’m sticking to the 5k goal for now. 🙂

      It was so well organized for an inaugural race! (but i suppose the R&R team have tons of experience!)

      Is your injury better? Are you planning any races?

        That’s great. I’ll look into running R&R LA next year if I don’t get accepted into Nike Women’s.

        My injury is better. I was diagnosed with ITBS, so I bit the bullet and bought custom orthotics. So far, so good. I’m taking it easy, but i’ll get back into racing next year. Just want to make sure everything is ok.
