Yesterday, I finished my second 1/2 marathon.
It was a great morning, a little cold at the start (~45F) and a sunny finish.
With all the snow in MD this winter, I have been running on the treadmill, doing faster paces and I started boot camp (Love it!! www.thebootcampgirl.com ), different training than my first 1/2.
Since January, I have lost ~10lbs going to boot camp and running on my own.
My goals for this race were to run as long/far as possible before switching to 3min run/1min walk and beat my Baltimore time (2hr 16min).
The reward - Chick-a-fil!!!
I made my goals and smashed my time. 13.1miles in 1hr 56min!! 8:51/mile! All running, no walking.
I am pretty impressed with myself.
At the 10mile mark, my time was ~1hr 30min, so I updated my goal to try and finish under 2 hrs.
I guess I am an official runner now :)
