1. Breaking two hours in the half.
Who would have thought I could run that fast. Not me. I used to run 11 to 12 minute miles when I first started this quest. When I ran a mile around 10:30 I figured that was as fast as I could go. Now I know I can run miles in the 8 min. mile range. Crazy. Now I think I can run even faster if I focus my training and do some speed work and tempo runs. Maybe my Top 5 for next year will include breaking into the 1:40s for the half. Dream big.
2. The Sedona Half Marathon
This race was just beautiful. It was a fun getaway for D and I. A cool place to visit. An awesome course and medal. I think one day I would like to go back and do the marathon. If you ever get the chance, do this race.
3.Catching the racing bug at Mount Lemmon- Round One
This was the first race I did after deciding to go for 30 before 30. The crazy became apparent right there as Mount Lemmon is pretty much all uphill. It was slow and leg burn inducing and so much fun. I think this is when I officially caught the I love running races bug. Fast or slow being out with other runners is always a lot of fun. Even if it means we are all grumbling about being dumb for thinking a race all uphill was a good idea. I loved it so much I went back for more.
