Hills, Hills and the Seattle Half

This is almost another year late...wait, just 8 months late but none the less here is my day at the Seattle Half Marathon.

Not sure about this dorky face but all I know is, I'm almost done!

I feel this pic shows how cold and wet is was that day

My sister's family is the BEST race crew around.  She stood out in the frozen rain to cheer me on and she was 8.5 months pregnant.  What a rock star!!!

I can look back at this day and say I put in a college try.  My training was sketchy at best.  The weather in Juneau was horrible to train in and I think I had lost that lovin' feelin' for running at that time.  This race was far from a PR. I had added 8 minutes to my best time from the Seattle Rock N Roll Half.  That being said, I feel like I walked a whole bunch more in this race.  So for all the walking I did, 8 minutes is not bad.  I have mixed feeling about this race and vowed to NEVER run it again.  The course was unbelievably hilly and it was so cold and wet.  The last mile was a hill for cryin' out loud!  But I did it. Half Mary number three on the books at 2:46:03
