Half Marathon P.R.
1:56:11

PR but NOT the one I was on target for (1:52).  I’m just not meant to have really big PR’s I guess.  I’m pleased with my splits except for the (4) that dipped into the 9:00’s.  My goal was to stay out of the 9:00’s today. (My last (5) 1/2’s were in the 1:58 – 1:59 range so I am sick of THAT consistency; including the one I did just 2 weeks ago!)
I have a massive blood blister on my big toe that started when I wore my Kinvaras last Sunday on a long run & it’s gotten uglier as the week went on, so going into the race with that thing & Cleveland just a week away, I was a bit worried about how my toe would fare, but it’s holding up only hurts to touch it. I had to pee the ENTIRE race! I wonder if it would have been worth it to just stop & go & get it over with; maybe I could have regained the lost time just not having to go anymore!

.19 per the garmin, 6:59! Just wanted it the heck over with; who knew I could even run this pace let alone after 13 miles?
