Well, today’s race didn’t go as planned. I finished the Lincoln Half Marathon in a surprising 2:35 (nearly 45 minutes slower than my previous best time). The first two or three miles were good enough, but then I began having chills, feeling nauseous, and having stomach cramps. So, my run turned into a walk/run combo. While I am disappointed in the result, there are some positives I will take from it:
- 13.1 miles is the farthest I’ve run in nearly eight years . . . something to build on
I got to see my family multiple times, always cool to have their support
- I saw a few other friends during the second half of the race; seeing them lifted my spirits during a challenging day
- My friend Mariah broke 2:00, super proud of her!
- Several other friends had great results, including:
