This is my 3rd half marathon to run. The first time I ran one I LOVED it and wanted to do it every year.
The next year I did it, I cried the entire way and ended up with a massive nose bleed at the end.
This time I was bound to land closer to the first than the 2nd. I ran The Middle Half in Murfreesboro. I felt ok about my amount of training (still not as great as the first year i trained...but good enough). With my supportive husband along to cheer, I was ready to get the party started...
anyone else think Josh looks like Moes from The Office?
it was a chilly morning, but I warmed up enough by the time the race started so josh was kind enough to "carry" my shirt for me...
I liked The Middle Half because the course is awesomely flat...unlike the Country Music one...but there aren't near as many people cheering along the course, so by the end I was really ready for it to be over. AND the police officers marking the turns along the course made a mistake at one turn so I actually ran about 13.6 miles, instead of 13.1. booyah!
They did call out everyone's names as you cross the finish line which I think is really fun and makes your feel special. overall, it was a good morning. One of my favorite things about running is the celebrating after!
josh and I celebrated at Whiskey Kitchen....yummm, hot skillet chicken is awesome!
I wonder which item I'll cross off for next month?!
