Finished a half marathon race this morning and posted a new Personal Best – despite the fact that both Heather and I have cold.
Compared to the last half-marathon I did this one felt infinitely better. Coming around the last corner my breathing was still fine, my legs were in good condition… I actually still had lots left in me. As Sam Sulivan was there cheering me on for the last bend I was thinking – “YEAH THIS IS AWESOME!” I picked up speed running past 10 people on the last hill and had a really good pace for the last kilometer.
In comparison the run I did last year… my knees felt like they were going to explode the moment I crossed the the finish line. I barely made the walk back to the apartment.
Next up. Some celebratory cake.
