Mini Race Report: 2010 Race for the Roses 1/2 Marathon

The Great Comeback of 2010 is on! Or as my mom told me today on the phone. “My fiesty footed fearless Heatherbeth is back!” Aw, Mom you’re so cute.

Today’s race was my sixth half marathon. Unlike  other races in the past, I had no lofty goals for this race. I figured maybe I’d shoot for 8 min/mile pace and see how that felt. Nothing fancy to it. I ended up beating the pants off my original goal.

Finishing Time: 1:36:06

Place: 29th female out of 1472. 8th in my age division

Pace: 7:20 min/mile

Woo, hoo!

    That’s definitely a mini report. Glad you’re back on the roads. Be patient. As the runningaheaders like to say, run a lot, sometimes fast, mostly easy.
