I had a great race on Sunday :-) I PR'd at 1:44:20 in the PF Changs Rock N Roll Arizona half-marathon. I felt GREAT and I ran well with my good buddy Anna :-) I think the trick was eating WELL the night before and having a light, but energy-filled breakfast in the morning! In Vegas I really hit the wall - and I think it was because I hadn't been eating right! Lesson learned.
I ran 4 miles that were over 8 minute miles - miles 8, 9, 10 and 11. All the rest were under 8 minutes/mile - my fastest mile being lap 1 at 7:36. I had a REALLY wonderful time in sunny Phoenix, Arizona!!! I got to stay with my mom that evening at the Arizona Grand Resort - what a nice place - and we had dinner at Claim Jumper's by the Arizona Mills mall. This is pretty fancy stuff for a girl from Kingman :-)
It was pretty much the best race ever - the whole trip was a great experience, and I really enjoyed running with Anna, one of my most favorite running buddies of all TIME! :-)
Thanks for a great race, Rock N Roll, Arizona!!!
