we ran a half marathon recently and it was actually kinda cool to participate in a race again this year. well, let me re-phrase that--schwing ran a half marathon, I gallowalked
I really had no business doing this race because I didn't train at all and the longest run that I did prior to the race was 5 miles
but we had already signed up and I really like doing this one so I went ahead and did it even though I knew my finish time would suck. I wasn't sure if I would finish but I did.
-it was the perfect weather for a race; couldn't have asked for better conditions. started out really cool and it pretty much stayed that way throughout the morning
-this was our first race together
-we got to start together and when schwing was finally able to go ahead of me, I could see him for a while because he was much taller than the other runners
-this was the first time I didn't carry water with me and just relied on the aid stations; I was kind of worried about that but it all worked out. the race was very well organized.
-crowd support was great
and I'd just like to say schwing did so well on the race and I'm so proud of him
