2nd half marathon complete. And you want to know what I told Dan the minute I saw him!? “Don’t ever let me do that again!” Ha. It was tough this time around. Around mile 10 my right hip was killing me. With every step I wasn’t sure if my leg was going to pop off or not! But thanks to Olivia, Kerri’s roommate, who stuck with me the whole way, I never stopped and made it across the finish line at 2:22:27…beating my old time by a minute and some change. Not sure how I did better cause it seemed so much harder. But I did it. And my recovery after the race was much, much better. Only a few waves a nausea that subsided in about 20 minutes. I didn’t have any GU this time around-just water-and I think that is really the key for me. Those nutritional chews do me wrong for some reason. So I’m not sure when my next race will be, but I have a feeling that in time I will forget the pain and sign up again just to remember how hard and painful it really is. Kind of like another process I’ve been through called pregnancy and childbirth!
