The weather was a balmy 42*, compared to my last half marathon which was 17*. Over 2,000 runners on the streets of Pittsburgh is cramped but lively! So many people were dressed up and had good spirits, despite our history of being a pretty
crappy team. We do have a nice field, which I got to run the bases on today!!
It took a while to cross the start line, but I LOVED to start and run a bit with my sister. I love her and her love for running at such a young age. When I was 12… I really really didn’t want to run anything more than the mile in gym class, eek!
The race was crowded until the last mile. We were on some trails off of the streets for a little while and they were muddy, which made the run exciting!! I like to dodge puddles/puddle jump :]
RESULTS: I placed 1st in the womens 16-19 age group (which included 23 other 16-19 year olds, I promise i’m not the only one LOL) With a time of 21:51 which means my pace was 7:03
Hannah placed 6th in the 16 & under age group (which included 38 other runners) With a time of 28:03 which means that her pace was 9:03
NOTES: Hannah and I both agree that we could have done better if the crowds weren’t so … crowded. But we BOTH had a blast! We have 4 more 5k/10k races coming up this and next month. CANNOT WAIT 🙂 🙂
Have a great rest of the weekend!
