2nd half marathon completed. Does it mean I did a full? Not yet, I guess. Feeling proud of this one because of the hills I knew I would have to climb. Unprepared, but ready anyways. My cramp right before the finish line really told me that it really wasn’t all mentality because I wanted to sprint across that finish line, but physically couldn’t. There’s a balance to pushing yourself and even though I’m a heavy pusher I realize my limits can’t be pushed too far or else I’ll suffer the consequences. Now I know that being physically prepared is just as important as being mentally prepared, the balance is necessary. Finished about 5 minutes faster than the first one, even though I felt I walked a bit too much due to the elevation. Doesn’t seem much quicker but considering the course, I think it’s a significant improvement. My goals are still being made and I’m ready to set a new one for myself.
I never want to post a picture of myself, but I want to have this for the memories I will smile and laugh at. Thought this was a pretty zen picture of me during the race. Either that, or it looks like I’m upset and need to finish. Perception is yours.
Just needed a quick nap.
Finished with this race, but never done running.
