Half in Half Moon Bay Half-Marathon -- 1:26:14

I was actually credited with 4th place, although at the time, I thought I had finished 5th!
I enjoyed running the Half in Half Moon Bay half-marathon this morning. It was a good challenge and was fun seeing lots of friends, especially from the Coastside Running Club. The race organization was superb -- good job, Jen Dill and all the volunteers! I haven't raced a flat paved half-marathon in 9 years, so I wasn't sure how it would go. My goal was to run at a faster pace than I used to be able to run marathons, and thankfully I achieved that! I also managed an age group win and 4th place overall.

Update: I was featured as "Athlete of the Week" in the HMB Review! Fun!
Finishing strong.
Random notes:

  • #85 and another runner joined at Mirada Rd. Maybe they had accidentally gone off course briefly?
  • At both turn-arounds, I thought I was in 5th place. People told me I was in 5th place. I don't know what happened that caused me to finish in 4th!
