Perfect Half Day


Today’s half marathon was a good run for me with a 1:53:42 finish time.  Despite not setting a personal record, I felt much faster than last year when I ran this race, formerly the National Half Marathon.  There seemed to be a few more hills but I pushed through them all.  Another thing I did for the first time during a race was wear my headphones (I actually took them off when passing the bands along the course, which I found to be a bit of a disappointment for it being a rock and roll run.  Except for my friend who I saw playing in Batala, a local women’s drumming band.  They always get me fired up.).

All in all though a good day…perfect weather (you can’t beat running in a tank top and shorts in 60 degree temps)…lots of fun St. Patrick’s Day costumes to be had…and the crowds were having fun.  Now I’m curious to see what the other cities’ runs are like where the Rock and Roll race series takes place.

Now it’s time to start thinking about what my next race shall be…I would like to have some friends join me for one.  Any takers?

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
