The 2012 San Diego Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon
Well, yesterday I managed to set a PR (that’s a personal record for those non-running blokes out there) at the San Diego Rock’n Roll Half Marathon. I was a little disappointed that I missed my personal goal of 2:15:00, by 2:11, but I think I did well considering I started to experience severe stomach cramping at mile 9.5.
The night before, I sat in front of my sewing maching to create a little felt Gnome fella for the front of my running top. So, with my seam-ripper in hand, I methodically hand ripped approximately six million tiny stitches to remove the mushroom I had double-stitched the week prior.
Despite my shin splint agony and tummy troubles, I feel pretty good. My hubby (he is insane) ran the whole 26.2 miles of manic manliness. I couldn’t be prouder of his hard work and dedication the past 8 months training, eating like a long-haul truck driver and meticulous marathon research.
Needless to say, I am going to take a few well-deserved days off to recover and start a new painting.
