I've started this blog to document my journey running while balancing motherhood, and eventually if I'm lucky enough, my next pregnancy.

National Half Results

So I made it; the National Half Marathon is over (thank God!)

I finished 13.1 miles in 2:29:58, a PR by 13 minutes, shaving over 30 minutes off my time since my first half last May. My official race time was 2:34:54, but the race was actually 13.5 miles. (I wasn't just my GPS, either. Everyone's Garmin said the same. And I wasn't weaving at all. I kept a pretty straight path down the middle of the road the entire race. We got there so late that we were in the back of the back from the beginning and it had thinned out.)

I'll give a full recap in the next few days... this was a drama filled race because it wasn't the best organized race (again).

  3. It was SO disorganized ~ uhg. What a mess. No, we won't be doing a repeat at National anytime soon either!

    Sounds like you made the best of it though - that's a great PR - a minute per mile!!!
