My funny run story

Monday, April 13, 2015

Good morning friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to let you all know how my half marathon went last weekend!

Well---I finished emoticon I signed up for an early start time which was great because I had peace and quiet up until about mile 5 before the fast runners started showing up.

It wasnt until mile 9 before my friend caught up to me. All was going well until I hit mile ten and realized that I had about 45 minutes to go. You see, starting with an early gun time requires you to finish in after 2.5 hours or longer---it's so slower runners can enjoy more of the finish line experience.

So, little did I know that after only a week of training, never running at altitude, and having not run bc of my knee injury, that I finished a half in 2:17....


So, here comes the humor. Since I was finishing early, I had to stand at the finish line and just wait to cross. DO YOU KNOW HOW AWFUL THAT IS, to just want to be done but cant because you unassumingly ran faster than anticipated!!! Ack.

Anyways, it was a great time, a gorgeous run and a great test of my mental strength. I have another one this weekend!!! What is my life:?!?!?!

Peace and love all,

jackie
