Pre-race routine:

Ate one pop tart, one cup of coffee with almond milk and water. Drove the ten minutes to the race. Met up with peeps, that was it.
Event warmup:

Nothing. Stood around because race was late to start.

  • 13.1 miles

Just wanted to average 10 min miles. Went under that, so I am happy.
What would you do differently?:

Train more! Although I honestly didn't have time to get the training in for this it's not bad, I feel good about it.
Post race
Warm down:

Drank some coconut water, socialized, rode bus back to car. Afterward went to food and drinks with some BTers which was awesome.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of long runs.

Event comments:

I just love this event--so close to home, where I run all the time....easy peasy and I love the race directors and others that work with them. Plus I always see so many friends out there. It's a good day.

This was the first half marathon since my breast reduction and I have to say it was incredible to finish up and not be chafed, bleeding, have neck, back, shoulder, back pain. ECSTATIC!
