Ok Kelli, here it is:
So I haven't been on for a long time. Life had gotten really busy and I had to let some things go. I have been running, but I haven't been posting my runs.
This last weekend I ran the Painter's half marathon! It was awesome! I felt really good. I ran with a really awesome friend who helped me stay focused on having a fun time and she helped me push myself.
I did like the course but I felt really bad for the fast runners who had to dodge all the people and even at some point they had to slow down because people are too dumb to figure out that the finishers are coming and so you need to GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!
Mentally it was really hard to pass the finish line and loop around again. If they could change that it would make the race 100% awesome!
At the start of the race I was having a really hard time getting into it mentally. It took me 3 miles to get out of my funk. We didn't have any cool watches to keep tack of our pace so I don't know 100%, but for the first 6 miles we were right around 9:30-9:40. I am really happy with that. Of course the last 3-4 miles I think I was around 10:30. Not too happy about that!! I am hoping for my next race I can keep it more consistent.
Overall I am every happy and had an awesome time!
