Past races

Happy Saturday! I was going to run today but it turned cold and actually was snowing/sleeting earlier. I ended up getting a ton done around the house. We went to the grocery and did some errands. I will take today as a rest day.

I wanted to share my results from my 4 half marathons. Mainly so I have this documented somewhere all in one place other than a piece a paper that I will probably end up losing :)

Half marathon #1-Columbus half marathon 2010:

I was so excited and nervous for my first half I couldn't sleep the day before! I remember that my goal was to finish under 2:30. My official time was 2:18:02. I was very happy with that time!

Half marathon #2-2011 Columbus Cap City:

I cannot find a picture from this one :-( Oh well! My time was 2:28:40. 10 minutes worse than my first! I don't think I put enough heart and soul in that one as I was just recently divorced and my mind was elsewhere.

Half marathon #3- 2012 Columbus half marathon:

I don't think I trained for this one as hard as I should have either. I met a guy and I had other things on my mind besides running :) He was so sweet that he followed the course and I was able to see him every couple miles. I knew he was special and I loved that he went to support me! 
Official time: 2:26:05

Half marathon #4- Columbus Cap City 2015                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
By this time I had talked the guy I met into running with me! My dad took this picture and it is one of my favorites from this day! My parents are always supportive and love watching us at the finish line.                                                                 Official time: 2:16:06                                                                                                                                 
We are 4 weeks until our first half of the year and we are so excited! My goal is to finish under 2 hours. The only thing is that it is not timed so I will have to depend on MapMyRide and the time isn't always accurate.

Have a great rest of your weekend; whatever you may find yourself getting into! :)
