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!


Celebrate with some Sierra Nevada Beer…

…and Sierra Nevada chapstick!

My bibs this weekend


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.


Check out  my route here:

Half Marathon – San Francisco by haleymg at Garmin Connect – Details.

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.



This was my dinner tonight, lobster pizza. Soooo amazingly good! My sister and I celebrated tonight.


Cheers to us! 🙂
