Wasn't the weather absolutely perfect?!? This is only my 2nd half, which I basically did not train for. I had problems with my IT band after my first half in January. I am not a runner, never have been. After 2 races, I am finding I like the peace and time in my own head.
I did manage to shave 11 minutes off my first half time. I am excited to see what I can do if I actually follow a training plan. For now, resting my IT Band and left hammy.
The DIVA site said pictures were going to be up yesterday. As of this morning, still none.

How'd everyone do at the Diva run yesterday?! I finished at 2:49:06. I was really excited to have finished quicker than I thought. I know they say for your first run it shouldn't matter about the time, but all I kept hoping for was just right under 3 hours. Nice that I finished more than 10 minutes faster than what I hoped for.

Got my 4 easy miles in this AM, and I've got track training on Wednesday for my final pre-race run. I figure the main thing I need to do this week is get my legs nice and loose. They're tight, not dangerously tight, but yowchie tight working it out on the foam roller.
What's your plan for the rest of the week?

I've been training to do do it part running and part walking. I was going for 3/1 ratio. My last 2 runs though I have felt really sluggish and felt metly like walking. I'm really hoping I find that strength to really push myself on Sunday though!

I am!! It's going to be my first half marathon so I'm a bit nervous. And I was supposed to be doing it with my cousin, but she's decided she's going to be walking most of it so I'll be on my own now :( I think I'll still have a great time doing it though.
