Weekend of racing!

This weekend was great!! Started with the Mud Blast in Colusa, The Giant Race Half Marathon in San Francisco & dinner out with my sis tonight (she got a cute little place, her first place on her own, downtown…lucky!)

Mud Run, Christen and I

The first race I have ever run that ends in the river…all races should end this way!

Have you ever seen the freeways in San Francisco this empty?? I never have, so I had to take a picture!

Before heading to SF this weekend I stopped in Stockton at Fleet Feet to pick up the Garmin Forerunner 10. I have never had a running watch before so I was really excited to get this! It is a super easy watch to use which is what I really love about it…actually, what I really love is that it was only $129. Oh, it’s also my favorite color.

My superstition is: on race day I wear the shirt from the last run I did. This is my only superstition 🙂

I finished my half in 2:07:54. That is 15 minutes faster than my first half! Yay me! I wanted to finish in 2 hours or less, but I knew from the beginning that wasn’t going to happen. My legs have been super tight (I am getting a message this week…yes!).  It was a difficult run from the start, but hey I still was faster than my first and running in San Francisco was amazing.
