>> Tuesday, October 23, 2012 – Running
Hershey half marathon complete.
Quick recap in photos:
|Obligatory Enter Sandman before the race.|
|Apparently I do a weird thing with my hands while I'm running.|
|Chocolate aid station at mile 11.5 Reese's Fast Breaks!|
|John's favorite sign for the day.|
|And finishing as the world's slowest runner.|
|Done. With a temporary tattoo on my wrist, a medal around my neck and protein bar in my mouth.|
I made the terrible mistake of going out too fast. I kept telling myself to slow down, and I thought I was, but apparently not. I slowed pretty hard at the end.
My next race is a Thanksgiving day Drumstick Dash, then I have a 5-miler lined up for December. I might add a Candy Cane Dash 5k in the beginning of December too. After that... DISNEY! I am planning on joining a half training group for my early spring half (Virginia Beach Shamrock Marathon/Anthem half). Hopefully they have speed training tips...
