It’s 4 minutes slower than my last half. And I am happy with that, and a little disappointed at the same time because it is the first race I have done since the LA-DU last year where I didn’t see improvement.
But. It was really hot! And I also probably went out to fast, my first 3 miles being sub 10. When it got hotter, I started to feel miserable. And my stomach cramped up with gastrointestinal unpleasantness like something awful. So, I should just be glad I finished.
I liked the race ok. I’d do it again next year if it isn’t over 80 degrees. There was one water stop (mile 5) where they had run out of cups, and they had run out of pizza and waterbottles by the time I crossed the finish line, but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that this was their first year.
