I absolutely love this race. I know I’m going to run it again next year and I hope 2012 is the year that I finally break the 30 minute barrier. I definitely have a little bit to think about when it comes to obsessing over the Garmin during a race. I can’t help but wonder if I would have finished it under 30 minutes if I wasn’t so obsessed with hitting the miles at an exact time.
I felt pretty good after the race so while the BF was getting a haircut I ran a few miles around Claredon and Courthouse. I’m pretty proud that I was able to put in another 3 miles after racing my butt off. I felt like I could have run for longer but I wanted a ride home so I needed to finish at the same time the haircut was done It was such a nice confidence booster in preparing for Baltimore . I’m so excited for this half marathon!
Have you run the same race course in different years?
Do you get wrapped up in your Garmin data? Do you run races without it?
