Congrats on your Half and your time... Thanks for sharing the pics, you both look cute with those shirts!
congrats on your time-- man,you are fast- that's like 20 minutes faster than even my DREAM time.
I'd love to pretend it IS because I'm fast - but seriously - there was a LOT of downhill..... I mean a lot. I really think know that helped.
I'm doing another half in Atlanta in the fall so I'll be able to see better what my 'real' time is - however I have to say this race is an ego booster for sure.
I think the overall winner had a time of 1:13 CAN YOU IMAGINE???????????? That was my 10k time last year hahahahhha Omg some people are just too fast
Well - if you ever want to get a PR plan to do the Downhill at Dawn in Ridgecrest, NC. It's at a baptist conference center and they have little hotel/apartment type things there. $89 a night and the race literally started right outside our door!! People there were SO NICE and it really made us feel like a million bucks (minus mile 10 - that made us feel SORE hahaha).
My PR's (post kid haha)

sounds like everyone is doing well! i've been so busy that i've only had time to do shorter runs this week-- 2-3 miles. however, i've been running every-other-day and will, hopefully, do 4 miles tomorrow. i've also been fighting this horrible stomach bug that put me out last week and slowed me down this week. i'm feeling better and am registered to do a 10k on sunday. i registered before my bug hit me, so i'm going to take it easy.
a couple of weeks ago, i also signed up for my first half, which will be the northern california half in san jose in mid-sept. i think it will be fun and am looking forward to it. so, i've got two halfs on my calendar-- one in september and one in november.
have a great weekend!
