Half marathon results: PRed by about 3 minutes. Just drank a beer in the bath. Full body massage coming up at 3 p.m.
I was in agony for the first three miles. Those three…were worse than the LAST three, if you can believe it. I wondered if I was going to be able to finish.
Right hamstring, left shin, right ankle all conspired against me. Plus it was cold and CRAZY windy. 35 mph gusts.
But then somehow all the pain just melted away and I started hauling ass. By the time we got to track I’d found a groove and when I saw the clock at mile 8, I realized a PR was still possible. That last mile, I was passing people left and right.
Bewildered. But elated.
