Today I ran the 1st annual Folsom Blues Breakout Half Marathon. It was a great race. Anyone considering for next year definitely should run it. It used to be called Natomas 4 Bridges Half Marathon (or something like that). The name, and the course have been changed a bit.
There was A LOT of up hill – which I actually don’t mind. I wish you could see on my Garmin Connect the route but for some stupid reason my Garmin stopped working properly around mile 2, then started back up again around mile 4. I’m a little upset about that & will be contacting Garmin to find out why that may have happened. Either way, you can kinda check things out – I did edit the mileage:
Here I am headed towards the finish..uphill!
So I don’t have the official results just yet, but this was my best half marathon to date. I finished in 1:54:04. I was trying for a 1:45:00 – 1:50:00. I think if it wasn’t for the hills I would have killed it!
The medal doubles as a bottle opener. Now that is my kind of medal!!
