1:58:10

Me with about a quarter mile to go.


I amaze myself!! I thought realistically, I could run the SLC Half in about 2 hours and 10 minutes. Well apparently all the running stars aligned for me the morning of the race and I was able to run it in 1 hour 58 minutes and 10 seconds. I started out way fast because I wanted to keep up with my sister in law, and then I was just able to keep on going. I just felt so great! I did hit a wall about mile 10, but managed to push through it for a couple of miles. They changed the course this year and put this little beauty of a hill at mile 12. Rude.


After this hill, I powered the last mile to break 2 hours. It felt so great!

Me and the kiddos after the race. My boy is only interested in my medal. He thinks I got 1st place. I'm letting him think that too. :)

Now, I have 9 weeks to train for the Seattle Rock-n-Roll Marathon!!
