Woke up bright and early to do the River Run Half Marathon today. I had a really good race and ended up taking 4th in my age group, averaging 7:27 per mile. 1:37:41
K ran with me for most of the race. We didn't talk much but it was nice having someone to help you keep pace. B and Su did awesome. At this rate they will both make their marathon goals for sure. A ran too slow with a friend and was mad afterwards but at least Su caught her at 9 to make the rest of the race more enjoyable.
To put my race time in perspective the first girl ran 1:16:51, second 1:21:22. I was 32nd out of women. Not too bad for me at this distance. It is a huge race, or at least it feels like it.
Unfortunately my heel started bothering me during the race. At the time I thought it was a bruise. K thinks it is planar fascitis. He is probably right. Let's hope that ice, ibuprofen, and stretching will do the trick, because these feet need to be ready for Columbus in a month!
