I finished my 1/2 marathon in 2 hours 40 minutes 1 second :)
I was very pleased with this & the fact that I was able to finish it on a day that included high humidity & the 1st 90 degree temp of the year (definitely not the conditions all of us had been training under!) I'm also fairly confident that I had a touch of heat stress when it was all over & done with, but am feeling much better now :)
No, I didn't run the whole thing, but I'm sure that I ran at least 90% of it (& did I mention that I finished-that's really all I truly cared about somewhere about mile 6&7 :)
I placed 8,332 overall; 4,590 among females; & 822 in my age group of 30-34. That may not sound that impressive, but I was never more proud to have that medal hanging around my neck! :)
Now...when's the next race? Just kidding...I'm not quite ready for that...yet, anyway! ;)
I'm glad that this last week of training is an "easy" one, but those 13.1 miles are approaching quickly~only 7 more days!
I know I can go the whole distance, my hope is to be able to run all of it, I believe it is quite doable (as long as this crazy, freaking wind stays away!!! It is definitely my downfall-give me cold, hot, rain, whatever, but high winds make for high difficulty in my running attempts! :)
I'll try to update on here as soon as I can next weekend with how it goes!!!
