The first half was too hot. And my first. And almost a trail race, which I wasn’t ready for and really sorta hurt myself. I started to slow after the 10k. My porridge was 2:16:18
The second half was too cold. And I was sick. And OMFG the hills. I started to slow after mile 7 and even had to walk a few times. My porridge was 2:19:36
The third half was just right. I was healthy and rested. Couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. Comparably flat (mostly). I made it through mile 10 without any issue, slowed for mile 11, and picked it back up for the last mile. My porrige was a kick ass PR of 2:08:08.
Those bears got nothin’ on me.
More later, I have champagne to enjoy.
p.s. Love my Zliten for being my most awesome athletic supporter (hehe).
Wooohoooo! I’m so proud of you!! PR!!!
You’re like the Goldilocks of the 21st Century. Keep whompin’ those bears, girl!

I love the theme of this post. Congrats on having a “just right” race!
Congrats on the PR finish! I’m glad someone had a good race down there! 🙂 And yeah, we’re pretty much the coolest parents now for having dinner with game creators! So fun to meet you guys…I’ve heard over and over now that I need to go to Austin for a race and will have a much better experience – so hopefully we’ll be able to meet up again!
