Remember how I said I was going to take the race relatively easy? Well, I didn’t do that. Wups. I raced it.
I blame it on somehow ending up in the sub-2:00 start wave. I think we all know how hard it is not to be swept up into the frenzy. It all sort of worked out though because I magically did not crash and burn.
I finished up the second half of the San Francisco marathon in 2:07:18, a time I feel really good about right now. And now I know where I’m at, which will help tremendously as I get into the thick of marathon training.
Now I would like to take a moment and say thanks to everyone for cheering me on! Especially Katie, G(r)eekMelie and Pahla, the (not so) average athlete of Pahla B Personal Training, for tracking me and cheering me on real-time. You guys are just the best and mean so much to me!
Actual race report coming soon to a blog near you…
