Adjusted Reality

“Reality can be beaten with enough imagination.” – Mark Twain

Half Marathon 3, or the Goldilocks Race

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).


Get it done
