It’s official…Glam Girls totally rocked another 1/2 marathon! A big ‘high-five’ and ‘way to go’ to all the Art Dash 5k, 10k and 1/2 marathon runners!
It was a beautiful day for a run. The morning fog/clouds had burned off and the sun was shining by 9am (a late start compared to other races, but I do love sleeping in). All of the distances started together and it was a bit crowded for the first few miles. After cheering on our friends who turned around for the 5k and 10k distances, we were on our own to tackle a humongous hill! UGH! That was not fun. But other than that, the race was completely flat and even a little downhill at the end. Everyone finished with a great time! Here are the official results:
N (10k)- 58:07 PR!
J (1/2, our token Glam Boy)- 1:35:51
R (1/2, that’s me!)- 1:59:54
E (1/2)- 2:16:15 PR!
S (1/2)- 2:21:04
I was very happy with my time, as I was not thinking I would try for under 2 hours. If you remember from this post that was my PR goal just about a month ago. This time, I actually didn’t try for under 2 hours until about mile 10 when I realized that I was right on pace for a great time. Had to sprint it out at the finish, which almost ended in a throw-up-everything-you’ve-eaten-this-morning kind of way. But luckily it didn’t!
Thanks to my awesome parents who came to watch me finish (the first time ever!) and brought along some much needed Gatorade and water!
