Capitol City Half Marathon

On Sunday, I 'wogged' (walked/jogged) my 3rd half marathon. The weather was absolutely awful. It poured the entire time & the temperature hovered at 49*. I have never been that wet/cold in my life. After the first mile, I was able to wring a bunch of water out my hair and clothes (& I still had 12.1 more miles to go). BUT, I powered through and tried to beat my last time. Unfortunately, I missed it by one minute 30 seconds. So close! I finished in 2:54:14. I blame the rain!!


So glad to be done!

Waiting at the finish line: my family (poor Nas was sick & came anyway), a dry towel & a cream cheese Danish from Wagners. YUM! Thanks B!  My sister Cynthia & her husband Mike RAN the entire half marathon and finished at 2:12 & 2:22. Good job guys!
Next year I will bring my camera (if it's dry!). I'm already looking forward to it!

I wish KEEN & Nike would get together & figure out a way to insert the Nike+ sensor into KEEN Whisper sandals. I LOVE my KEEN's and would have loved to have run the marathon in them. But...I needed to track my mileage and had to wear my Nike's. Maybe someday!
