More/Fitness Women’s Half Marathon Recap

I had planned on posting this yesterday, but in light of what happened in Boston, I decided it would be best to hold off.  As a I said yesterday, I am still deeply saddened by what happened and I’m keeping everyone in my prayers.

******************************************************

On Sunday I ran the More/Fitness Women’s Half Marathon.  I was completely unprepared.  I don’t think going on one five mile run since last fall really counts as training, but whatever.  My plan for the race was to run a bit, walk a bit, and basically just enjoy myself, since it was supposed to be a nice day in Central Park.

Obviously it was crowded at the start.  I’m usually in the last or second to last corral(yay for being super slow!), but somehow i ended up behind the race walker at the start.  So that was super fun – trying to dodge through ladies walking six abreast.  Not cool.

But anyway,I had a great time.  I ran until I was tired, then walked a bit, then ran some more.  Basically it was just a nice way to spend a few hours in the sun, getting some exercise and rocking out to Justin Beiber on my ipod.

AND Deena Kastor ran by me!  Girl is fast!  Also, she has my same Garmin watch.  We’re practically twins.

Official finish time was 2:30:32.

My next race is in five weeks, so hopefully I’ll actually run between now and then and be able to improve a little bit.
