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…

  1. Can’t wait to read the whole race report!!! If you’ve ever tracked somebody online, you know how exciting it is to hit refresh and see a new (faster than expected!) time pop up. You are such a rock star!! And thanks for the shout out! 🙂

  2. wups! I wonder why this never happens to me… but it was obvious that you were not taking this easy from the speed that the little red dot was moving on the map. you did amazing! 🙂 can’t wait for the longer version.

  3. You did awesome! Tracking your dot was more exciting then the women’s cycling that the Olympics was covering (seriously).

    You rocking this half inspired me to lace up my runners for the first time in 4 months.

    • Hahahahaha! That’s just because running is way cooler than cycling! And I’m so excited you got back out there!!!!! We totally need to do a race together Katie. Seriously. Go pick one out.
