Today I ran my fifth half marathon and took away a new PR!!!!! I busted my butt training that last few months and it paid off! I shaved 7 minutes off my previous best and finished in 2:06:47!!!! 9:33 average pace. So so proud

The race was organized very well, I parked, walked right on to a shuttle and waited at the start for about 20 minutes until the start and there was NO lines at the porta potties.. Whhaaaa!

I went out a bit too fast holding a 9:10 average pace the first 6 miles when I should have been more at a 9:30.

It started getting tough at mile 10…. Mile 11 I had liquid pouring from my nose? And mile 12 I wanted to walk and throw up, neither or which I did.

I saw my friend, sister in law and husband at mile 13 and had a nice boost and then it was down hill to the finish!

When I got home I promptly showered, ate a large cheese sub and took a nap in my medal ;)
