Race Report:



Great race! I'm not fond of the 9:45 start but if it works for the marathoners -- they deserve it! It was a slow start because I likely started a bit too far back.

Ran 9 min miles for the first 4, even with the slow start. Felt great to about mile 10, then I wish I had kept it a bit more evenly paced. I seem to always dog through the last two miles of a half would like to have some extra energy.

I stuck with water and energy beans, so one thought would be to drink some gatorade.... or more hill training!

Great weather, wonderful people on the race course, enjoyed watching my training partner pass me about 1/2 mile before the finish - she did great! Enjoyed hanging out with my two girl friends who also did really well! Wonderful seeing some Howard County Striders who had completed their marathon - way to go!

During the last mile, I kept repeating to myself -- do not do a marathon....

Long wait for the train on the way home... zzz - missed my son's half-time band show but enjoyed the football game with tired legs!
