I went into this with no pace goal whatsoever, which is a good thing since this was my slowest half. I had a lot of fun, and treated it as a training run with a free shirt and live bands. HOPEFULLY I'll be back in top form for the Deckers Creek Half on June 2. I'd like to get a new PR there, but my secondary goal is to avoid further injury. We'll see. In addition to my Achilles Tenosynovitis, I came down with a dreadful cold/cough yesterday, which really messed with my breathing and overall energy. But as I said, it was a fun race with lots of music, good friends, and treats.

    Nice! It's nice to sometimes to run a race just for fun. I was thinking of doing the same thing. I'm registered for a half in October, and was thinking of running another half 5 weeks prior to it 'just for fun.'

    You have the most positive attitude. I wish I could keep your high spirits. Sorry the cold/cough came at this time. You ran a good race and love that you have such a good time. You'll be back to normal by June's half.

    Good job Michele! I did the same today and I can say its much more fun to hold back a little enjoy than to push for speed every race.

    Great job! I think I saw you around mile 2, but I was talking to my brother and before I knew it you were a ways ahead of us! :) I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Feel better soon!
