#21 in the books.
More later as I am beyond exhausted but just wanted to stop in to say race #21, the Hollywood 1/2 marathon is done! I had a great race! Didn’t PR BUT given some issues I was dealing with (ladies you know what I’m saying) I actually made amazing time (for my slow self) at 2:31.
I’m a little pissed at myself for giving up a bit in the last 2 miles but I’ll explain that later. This time is 23 minutes faster than the horrible very bad no good run I had at Agoura, proving that was an off day. That run actually scared me. Whew! 3 weeks until my next half and I am absolutely certain I can break 2:25. I ran at 2:20 pace for 75% of the race today. Subtract the issues I had and POW. I will get to 2:15 before I think I will start to plateau and have to really work insanely hard to be faster. I have it in me. I know this now.
