Quick Shamrock Tail

This weekend was not quite what we excited temperature wise. The high today was 40 with a feels like 32-34 for most of the race and windy.

But the real thing that matters is that I finished my first half marathon and broke two hours thanks to smart training and a flat and fast course. There are many other people and things to thank, but I will get to those in another post.

So, for now, a couple quick pics.


Official time was 1:58:21.

After an early wake-up, 13.1 miles, lots of other walking, cheering two basketball teams to a loss, room exchange debacle at the hotel, finally a shower, and dinner, this girl is ready for bed at 9:30.

Glad I'm not working until 5 pm tomorrow.


  1. Congrats!!! Having a sub-2 first half is such an accomplishment!

    The wind was killer, yeah? UGH!

    1. Thanks Kathryn. Awesome result for you too. Maybe one of these soon we will actually meet.

  2. Congrats on your first half marathon!! Wow, sub 2 hours is HUGE!!! I also ran this race and loved it, very well organized (minus the late start).

    1. Thank you. I just wish it had been a little warmer, but maybe I ran faster because I was cold. :)
