I did the River Road Half Marathon today! It was about an hour and a half away, so me and my friend left bright and early to get to the race by 7. (Not really that bright and early- I got up the same time I always do). The race was an "out and back" course- which was awesome. It was on a road that ran all along a beautiful river. (And should I mention that it was a PERFECT 55 degrees during our race? We couldn't have asked for better weather.)
Here I am at the finish.Boy was I glad to be done. It was a HILLY course. As we started the race we tried to keep track of the hills- since we knew that we were going to run back along the same road. The race started down hill... for like a mile and a half. Which was an awesome way to start! Man oh man was it a tough finish. The entire last mile was a struggle. 4 big hills right in a row. I've never been so glad to see a finish line in my life.
