This is the first 10k I’ve done. I’d originally signed up for the half, but due to some time constraints with traveling family, we had to get back home by a certain time on Sunday. I dropped down to the 10k since there was no way I’d finish the half early enough for us to…
In summary: Best spectators. Unforgiving hills.
I recently registered for a marathon and have started my training plan for it. As such, I’ve started considering my upcoming halfs as “training runs.” I know this is typical, but I still have this sense of Who am I trying to kid? when I run. Because this didn’t feel like training.
My first half of the year! I had signed up for this before signing up for Las Vegas. I considered it a birthday gift. My mom came with me, and we stayed in Phoenix with some family.
I had already signed up for Savannah and planned for it to be my last half for the year. Then my mom casually mentioned that her favorite band was going to be headlining some half marathon, and hey, didn’t I like to run?
I was not better.
