First of all thank you to everyone who donated to Labrador Rescuers, my charity of choice for the Carlsbad Half! I raised over $3600!
On race day I so wanted to run a fast race. It didn't happen! It was sunny (not a cloud in the sky) and I knew it was going to be warm! Not my favorite running conditions at all!
I started off strong but around mile 9.5 the inhaler came out and I felt the heat and sun starting to win!
I was gunning for 2:30, I was on pace for it for a bit and then bam it was gone!
Oh well 2:41:58 is about what I run. Guess sun and heat are my nemesis and maybe I should rethink races in Southern California!
One day I hope to have a post 40 year old PR......
I will post a longer race report and more pics from Saturday nights dinner and Sundays race when I find I have a break from work! Ha ha ha!
