My goal for the year was to break the 2:00 1/2 marathon time. I did not exactly do that at IronGirl because of the short course, but I still ran my heart out.
The first 6 miles I felt like I was flying but it slowed from then on. The rolling inclines on the tail end of the run were difficult and I walked a few times.
I ran a few long runs in training but they were at a slow pace, maybe I should do some longer runs with tempo miles at race pace for a better preparation.
I am preparing to do the Nut Job next weekend in Frederick so perhaps I can run a good race again next weekend.
