Hancock Half Marathon

I ran today!! It was a perfect morning for it. Chilly, but once you start running you never get hot. I didn't think I was going to get to run it, my running partner hurt her hamstring and wasn't going to do it. But last minute she decided to go ahead and I went with her. I am so glad I did. I had a wonderful PR. I finished at 1:49. My last half in May I finished around 2:05, so I made a pretty big improvement over the summer. It was a pretty small race, but I placed 2nd in my age group. Granted I can hardly walk now, my muscles are so sore from pushing them to the limit at the end. I am only sad I don't have pictures. Corey had a conference and I had a wonderful friend come and stay with the kids. But even with no pictures I was so happy. My average pace was 8:22.

Congrats! What an awesome time improvement. I am not sure I will ever get why people run, but I totally respect and admire anyone who can train their body to accomplish such a feat. I wish you had pictures, too. But at least you documented it here so that you'll always remember it.
