My goal was to finish the half marathon within the 4 hour time limit. And I wanted to have some energy left over at the end for the after party. And to have fun. Those were my only goals.
I finished in 2:49:03! Woo hoo! It was so much fun I might even run another one some day. I was quite happy with my first half marathon.
And since this is a motorcycling blog, I'll say that I plan to ride a lot more now that I'm done training.
I was hoping we'd eat here but we didn't. Maybe next time. :-)
Wow! That's a great time especially for your first half marathon! And you're not completely burned out. A couple of years ago, I entered a marathon but I had a much simpler goal. Finish under the time limit and to beat Ted. Met both goals but I was pretty sore for the next couple of days.ReplyDelete
Thanks Richard! I am quite pleased with and proud of myself! I was limping a bit the evening of the race but by the morning I felt better. And today I feel 100% back to normal! A quick recovery does wonders for the psyche. :-)ReplyDelete
Reading your post makes me want to try a half as well. The trick to find one without mountains.ReplyDelete
This Vegas half was fantastically flat. I was very happy for that! :-)ReplyDelete
