    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).

     

    Thanks!!

    Pam

    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!
