I was told there would be a runner’s high bhahha
…waiting in the rain to start the Niagara Fall’s Women’s Half Marathon . ..
Naturally my competitive nature kicked in. Perhaps my biggest race weakness is that I always start out too fast. My first 6 KM — which were flat and beautiful — looped passed the falls twice. Here I am with the 2 Hour pace bunny. I tried to tell myself it was too fast and that I should pull back, but I was passing people, having a blast and feeling good.
…Don’t worry that feeling didn’t last…
I did my best to go balls to the wall in the final KM, which was definitely the toughest km for me.
My spirit animal was at KM 19 – a Unicorn handing out Jelly beans and Jube Jubes 🙂
