I can now officially say that I’ve run in 4 half marathons! And this one was just perfect. Perfect weather, perfect atmosphere, perfect results, just perfect.
Pre race snack– I stuck with the usuals: Cheerios and a banana. They are light on my stomach and never give me issues during long runs!
We got to the start line about an hour before the gun. It left plenty of time to get situated (aka get in the port-a-pottie line). I got through the line twice! Score! You don’t understand how exciting that is until you’ve run in a few Rock n Roll events.
Then we were off! The course was spectacular. The were two or three hills, but nothing too unmanageable. In fact, the big hill was actually a downhill (it was perfectly between miles 10 and 11, right when you start to feel a little like death!) This was the first half that I ran with my phone. I must say, I did enjoy having it! I got to snap some pictures and it made finding my dad much easier afterwards. Plus, I got to listen to BodyPump 94 as I ran! Might as well take the opportunity to memorize the tracks!
The Rock n Roll events always spoil you at the finish. Snacks for days!!
Then I had to kiss San Diego goodbye. I was very reluctant to do so. A few tears were shed for sure. But, I have a weekend full of memories! And, if all goes as planned, I’ll be back next year to run the full marathon!
How about you?
- Enough about me. Tell me the most spectacular thing about your weekend!
