Mason Half Marathon Race Report

Sunday I ran my 6th half marathon, which I have nominated as "worst prepared for" in the Half Marathon category :)

Overall, I'm happy with the day. I had no expectations, except a little bit of a worry going into the distance so ill prepared. But I looked at it as a long training run only, that I just happened to pay money for so I could do it with a bunch of people. That it was!

My first 7 miles I averaged between 10:15 and 10:30 pace. At mile 7, the wheels fell off and I had to walk hills and just take it easy the rest of the way. So my end average was 11:28.  Meh. It really is OK. I didn't expect any more given my horrible training and am still glad I got a 13.1 mile run in.

Next up: TRAINING, eating better, losing some weight, and making running fun again. Lucky number 7 is next, and I'm determined to break my 2:09:49 PR. Maybe even smash it.
