Mississippi Gulf Coast Half 2015

So here are my splits from Saturday’s race. I started off trying to keep race pace, then it got HOT and I told myself that I was NOT going to overdo this and set myself back (again) in my marathon training. So, I settled down and stopped at each aid station then ran/walked the rest of the way. It did suck just a bit seeing that my fastest time would’ve won a first place in my age group for this one but eh….placing in my AG for a half IS on the bucket list for me…just not this running season. I’ve received AG awards, just not in a half marathon. This running season is for full marathons and #marathonmaniacs #doubleagent status. Not any PR’s, not how many halfs I can run. Just my races, my paces and a safe and injury free 2 marathons. I just have to keep reminding myself of these goals. Next running season will be all about the PR’s and AG awards I can possibly get. Hopefully. I’m not incredibly fast by any means but I’ll work on it next season! How’re y’all this morning? Anyone working out? Running? I’m still leary about weight lifting after the Rhabdo. I brought my workout clothes but if I decide not to weight lift, I won’t beat myself up. Running is more important as is being healthy!! #weightlifting #damnrhabdo #run #rnr #instagramrunners #runnersofinstagram #marathontraining #runrocknrollnola #wls #wlsrunner #fitness #firstmarathon

Whew!! A tough, hot and humid #7thhalf done!! I was gritty from salt/sweat after this one!!😳 This really has to be the hottest half I’ve ever done. It was pretty flat though. I stopped at almost every single aid station I could. They had 7-8? And I might have missed 2. I was very careful and kept reminding myself that this was NOT a PR race. I ran/walked and finished at about 2:32:13? This is not official yet but eh, doesn’t really matter as it’s a stepping stone. Congrats to all the winners of today’s race!! I have to hand it to those marathoners…it’s amazing that y’all did it, the half was hard enough!! Now for a shower and some Roll Tide football!! Hopefully I won’t fall asleep!! 😂😂😂#marathonmaniacs #marathontraining #halffanatics #halfmarathon #mississippicoastmarathon #runrocknrollnola #rnr #runnersofinstagram #wls #wlsrunner #Rolltide #gobama #crimsontide #fitness #gbs
