Foothills Half Marathon Recap

 I finished! And even better than that i finished with no major injuries and a new PR!  I really struggled with how to run this race knowing I have another one in three weeks, but my competitive spirit just would not let me run it like a long run.  I started out fairly slow but now as slow as I should have.  By about mile three I thought, "I'm gonna be sore and hurting tomorrow no matter how I run it so I might as well try for a PR."  It was really tough though. I don't think I was prepared enough. However, in the end, I think I PR'd.  My unofficial Garmin time was 2:41.  My best time on a half before was 2:43.  So I barely squeaked this one by.  I'll take it!


Now I've got the medals from three Halfs!  Yay!
I keep my bling hanging on the wire shelving in our master closet. Yep, I'm slow, but I'm out there trying. And tonight I am sore, but it is the good kind of sore and tired.  I am very thankful that I'm able to to do this. So many folks my age and even younger can't.
