It was windy and cold, but we powered through and the Glam Girls completed the first half marathon of the year! GlamGirlC’s finish time was just about 2 hours. GlamGirlS finished in 2:11 and I finished in 2:05….my personal best! I had to stop and walk a little bit, so I was surprised at how fast I finished. The first few miles were great and I started to feel warmed up and fell into my stride at about mile 4-5. Right about mile 8 there was a long, steady hill that slowed me up quite a bit. At the top of that hill I was able to eat a Gu and that made a big difference. The last mile was mostly downhill (yay!) and I was able to pass a bunch of people. I definitely was no where near placing or being a top finisher, but it’s always super satisfying when you pass someone!
We each have a goal for the next run in Vancouver, which is just 20 short days away 🙂
