After hitting the expo on Saturday afternoon at the Santa Anita Race Track for the Pasadena 1/2 me and my
race support crew friends headed to the hotel so I could shower and put my compression socks on the wrong feet. Once I hit the bed it was over there was no way I was going back out. The Palos Verdes 1/2 wore me out and I was a little worried about running the next day another 13.1.
|Wait the R is on the left foot....something seems off|
|Pasadena City Hall at the start|
|Sweaty beast- apparently CA has humidity. Bleh gross|
So how did it go
9 13:20 (curse you gu, curse you)
Official Time: 2:24:36 Garmin Time: 2:23:46 Distance: 13.37 (seriously what is with these super long races?)
I grabbed a banana and a granola cliff bar and then J and I headed through the expo and stopped on the grass for a moment so I could stretch a little. Then we moved it along back to the car so I could shower and we could check out of the hotel and get on the road to head back to Tucson (7 hour drive).
After checking out we headed to breakfast at
I wore my fancy clothes to b-fast, compression socks and shorts, dress flats and regular shorts and a t-shirt. B & J tried to stand apart from me but I made sure everyone knew they were with me. The crazy in compression shorts out in public. After stuffing my face it was into the car. J&B let me lay in the backseat and B drove the whole way because he is my hero. So I napped and elevated which I think enabled me to get out of the car when we got back to Tucson.
1/2s number 16 & 17 in the bag!
