Rock n' Roll San Diego Half-Marathon: woo-hoo!
2011 time: 02:01:13 (13.1 mi.)
2012 time: 02:02:53 (13.28 mi. according to my Garmin ;)
so.... one could argue that I ran extremely close to the same time but without knowing exactly how far I ran on the course in 2011, we'll just have to settle with this.
Keep the peace or out comes the beast! Yeah, well, that happened - I started sprinting in 30 second intervals throughout the past two miles and you could almost feel the vibe with the other runners. They caught on and there was a real race at that point - we did not acknowledge it, but we were racing each other b/c there was no way they were gonna let this tall chunky female beat their ass on the final 2 miles of the race! No matter what! Well, sorry to those that got their egos slightly deflated that day - and kudos to those that whipped my ass and helped me (unknownst to them) beat my personal expectations!
