Automatic PR since it was my very first Half Marathon. I ran/walked and my goal was to finish in one piece and under 3:30. I finished in 3:28:16 (Garmin time). The crowd at the end was absolutely AMAZING!! Putting my name on my shirt was the best thing i could have done. People yelling my name all over the place, plus seeing my mom with my two 6 year old nieces pulled me through the finish. I ran 15/16 minute miles the whole time... but my pace after the last mile was 10:39 on that downhill. :)
Congrats to all who ran. It was a great day to be out there!
This is the 3rd run for me and the longest also. I ran the 8K. Good run. I wanted to do better than 51 minutes. Coworker said that I could do 47 minutes. I did 45.51. I should not underestimate myself. Need to train for a 10K now.
