1/2 Marathon #7 RECAP

I love running a new course, the miles just seemed to zip by because I had no idea where I was. Here are a run down of the mile:

Mile 1-4 Excellent…or course early in the race right?
Mile 4-5- WIND…just had to hunker down and keep running
Mile 5-9- Beautiful….these miles took place on a beautiful walking/running/biking trail.
Mile 9-13.1- WINDY, WINDY and MORE WIND plus a hill. I hate to sum up the race in these mile but as soon as mile 9 hit, we turned and face the 20 MPH wind uphill. The hill would not have been bad if it was not for the wind. But like runners do we keep going. I could tell I intensely slowed down, but seriously guys the WIND SUCKED BUTT!!!

I ended the race slower than what I wanted but looking back at my splits, I was right on track up until the wind, MILE 9. Even with the wind I felt good, my legs felt strong, and no stomach issues this time. NOt much a person can do about the wind, so I am not going to beat myself up(too much) about it. Can’t wait until #8!

 

Keep Running!!
