Half marathon race result breakdown
Chip Time: 1:37:42 (garmin said 1:37:39)
Clock Time: 1:37:50
last years race report and results can be found HERE.
there used to be a 26.2 tied in with this event, but last year, the organizers decided that 2010 was the last year for the marathon. thankfully, they decided to keep doing the half marathon, so guess what happened this year? all of those runners that would have done a marathon had no other choice but to do the half so i noticed it was a little more crowded, but no big deal. it made for more competition that's for sure. i also want to point out that the 40-44 female age group is more fierce that the 35-39! just sayin'. raise your hand if you agree?
the weather was great for cycling but a little warm for running. even though the race started at 6am, while it was still dark, i could feel it heating up around mile 4. i promise i'm not whining here. i train in this heat and i'm used to it but i don't LOVE running it. i do LOVE cycling and swimming in it way more.

as usual, i am VERY sore today. my quads, hammies, and left glute (never the right) are sore but a good sore not an injured sore. needless to say, no running for me today and probably not tomorrow. i did hit the weights and the bike this morning but sitting all day at work made me get even more sore, so tomorrow it looks like a great day to swim and bike.
can you believe? february is OVER! only 249 days til IMFL.
much love and peace out!
