I don’t know how I did it… but I DID IT.
I really thought I was going to be throwing in the towel this morning. Last night was rough and the first four miles were full of hurt, but then the adrenaline set in. Wonderful, sweet, beautiful, adrenaline.
I have a full recap coming, but I finished the Baldwin Park Half with a smile in 2:13:30. Not my fastest race by any means, but definitely exceeding my expectations.
Not bad for 6 months postpartum, with minimal training time, and a (stupid, stupid) injury. I figure I can only get stronger and faster. And you know, less injured.
PS – I love running! Can I run alllll the races now?
