Here's a couple things I didn't include in my novel of a race report:
My Lululemon arm warmers (I was going to link them but they aren't on the website anymore) were awesome! I wasn't even sure if they would stay up but they did and I loved them. Super soft and super warm. Eventually I pushed them down and I stayed cool even though half my arm was still covered.
For my next half (and there will be one!) I need to make more of an effort to take in everything, including my surroundings. I think I missed some pretty sights and fun things on the course because I tend to look down at the ground due to my fear of stepping on something and rolling my ankle again.
Loving that my knees don't hurt. They never did. I'm only sore in my quads and a little in my lower back. Definitely need to do some core work.
It started to rain pretty good once I crossed the finish line and I guess since I was no longer in motion I got pretty cold. Cold as in my lips were blue!
Minimal training in the last month or so before this race is reflected in my official time. I know this is my first race and it was a difficult course and I should be happy and I am but the 2:41 is knawing at me. I know I can do better.
I'm already looking for another half. Next time it'll be on a flat course though :)
