See Kate Run, Running Around in Circles!
On August 30th I ran the Murdock Half Marathon. Jared made me as sign- it says Go Go Mom!
My goal was to cross the finish line with a time faster than 2 hours 26 minutes. According to my watch I was 2:25 (once you pass an hour it stops counting seconds) According to the official race time I was 2:26.01.....I'm going by my watch :) My watch is always right!
It was a hard run. I didn't bring my hydration belt because races have aid/water stations. But for me, the water stations were a little too far apart and I felt dehydrated and tired. I would like to run this course again sometime WITH my hydration belt. I'm pretty sure I could easily beat 2:25, maybe I could get close to 2:20, that would be awesome. The only problem is, it starts and ends at two different locations. Still working on the logistics for how I could make this personal 1/2 marathon happen, BUT I hope to do it in late September or early October. I'll let you know how it goes.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about working out for 60 minutes per day. I have to admit, that post was actually meant for my other blog. I've had a second blog on which I document my weight loss and my general road to, and hope for, good health. I don't know that anyone ever really sees that blog. But I had a friend who commented and the misplaced blog post and so I figure it was always meant to be here on this blog. If you are interested in checking out my other blog, here is my latest post from See Kate Run.
