PR on heavy half marathon (Read 1067 times)

bas


    The half marathon I ran today was windy, included 7 kms on a narrow beach and 7 more on a nasty brick road through the dunes. But I ran a PR! Big grin. You can read the race report here bas

    52° 21' North, 4° 52' East

      Way to go! Wind definitely adds that special degree of difficulty to any race! Nothing like a PR to keep the motivation up. Great job!

        She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

          Give the guy a break, zz! Big grin I'm sure he can't think straight for all the endorphins buzzing around... Tongue Excellent run, Bas! Congrats! You rock! modified to add: anyone else find endorphins to be a little bit of a mind-fuzzer? Big grin

                    Thank you! It was not my first half marathon, only the first one here. My first HM was not long ago though. I ran that in october 2004 in Amsterdam. My time was 2:09:.. so I have managed to imrpove myself since then. I'm happy about that! bas

                      Awesome bas! Congrats on the PR

                        Congrats, bas! Loved reading your report. That's a great time under less-than-ideal conditions--especially the wind. I do not like the wind at all.
