National Half Marathon

No, I haven't run it yet! I'm just up early (4:40AM!) getting ready. Here's the radar. Ugh! But not as bad as it could have been. It's 54*F with light winds. THANK YOU for the running advice and good wishes, everyone! Back later after my 29th half marathon.




Update: I'm home!! And finished! And I had a MOST EXCELLENT race!! Not my fastest ever, didn't break my PR from 3 weeks ago (and didn't expect to) , but it was my 2nd-fastest ever and I think it was my best-paced, best-executed race of my entire running career!! I felt pretty darned good every single mile of the course, the mile markers all seemed to arrive early (WTF!!?), and I finished somewhere between 2:29:38 (Garmin time) and 2:30:09 (watch time).

Plus I got to visit with David and Chuck at the start and Holly at the finish!! How fun!! Many more details to follow after a hot bath (no, I don't do ice baths after races unless I have to run the next day. Nooooooooo!).

Thanks to Holly for the post-race photo. FREE BEER!
