Hypothermic 1/2 Marathon – Race Recap

Posted Mar 03 2013 10:31pm

Lets talk about what makes a run good and what makes a run bad, shall we?


  • The Sun – I love having the rays shine down on me.
  • A bit of a breeze, but not to strong – to cool me down.
  • Like +10 weather is just perfect.
  • When my playlist picks good songs when on Shuffle.
  • Seeing a good km split on my Nike Watch
  • Time going by quickly
  • Fueling properly so that you never feel fatigued


  • Rain
  • Snow
  • Strong Wind
  • Uneven ground, making it slippery
  • Heavy Legs
  • Not going to the bathroom before running
  • Having to go to the bathroom while running
  • Blisters
  • Chafing
  • Slow times

Why did I review these things, you ask?

self Well, today I ran half marathon.

And it was awful.

weather snow

It was blizzarding out. It was slippery. It was humid. It was windy. The ground was uneven, so I used a whole lotta stabilizing muscles and had to significantly slow my pace so that I wouldn’t fall.


I fueled beautifully for this race and my legs felt fresh. Had the weather conditions been nicer, it would have been the perfect run.


Alas, I ended up with huge blisters and an Amie Personal Worst at 2:31:46. Could be worse I guess :P
