Well, right off the bat let me tell you that I made it. I'm here on my couch relaxing in my compression calf sleeves from Lunatik Athletiks. I tried to wear them out to brunch after the race but Katie said no way.
This was my fourth running of the Presque Isle Half Marathon and the weather cooperated in a big way! We've had a summer that alternated between rain and stifling heat so I was really prepared to suffer. However, this morning at the starting line it was about 65 degrees. By the time I finished it was around 75. Mid-July racing just doesn't get better than this!
I headed to the starting line by myself and took a little self-portrait for you in the car.
