Southern California half Marathon

first race of 2012 done and done  

I ran the southern California half Marathon this morning. It’s held in Irvine, CA – where Ben used to live when we were dating. I remember doing a long run by myself and seeing other people running a race in January. I always told myself “next year” and would forget!

Finally I remembered this year. Kinda. I registered for it yesterday. The southern California half is a small, local feel race. There’s no big expo, cotton t-shirts (boo) and about 4,000 half marathoners.

Sarah (Once Upon a Lime) opted not to run this one, but offered some killer cheerleading and photography. I felt pretty good for the entire race, hit a bit of a wall around mile 8 but took a gel and felt better  

I wish there were much more aide stations and there were no gels on the course. The entry fee was not low-cost enough for that to be okay.I heard there was food at the end, but I didn’t see it. All I got was a bottle of water.

I have not trained for a half marathon for years. At this point I just run half-ers if I feel like it and have been able to maintain enough fitness to survive. But, I didn’t feel like I was in good shape today – just didn’t feel like I was running strong.

This was a pretty flat course and I was still 15 seconds over my pr (and that race was hilly). I’m considering maybe actually training for a half sometime this year. Måske.

Half Marathon – 1:47:18 average pace 8:13

Okay, I have to come clean – I don’t even run, I actually bike the course!Actually, Ben rode his bike to the race to take some pictures. It is about 9 miles from our condo.

Post-race we went for FOOD.

I voted for my favorite restaurant – whole Foods.

That upper left corner is a substantial piece of Crème Brule French Toast. It was so good it made me cuss.

Today is another beautiful day! I ought to really get outside (even though I want to stay in and nap).

Hello to Lindsey, Monica and another reader (forgot your name) who stopped to say “Hi!”!! Congrats on the amazing race! Today seemed like an “on” day for everyone
