My full recap of the National 1/2 Marathon will come tomorrow. For now, I’ll update you just to let you know that I not only hit my goal of breaking 2 hours in the race, I also crushed my goal time, coming in at 1 hour 44 minutes and 48 seconds.

Feeling good post-race!

I felt great the entire time and was thrilled with my time. I honestly didn’t know I had it in me.

Oh, and yes, I did race in leg warmers. More on that tomorrow.

Congratulations to all of the runners and spectators today. Rock stars all over the place!

Sleep time! I have a feeling I’m going to sleep great and wake up a very sore girl tomorrow.
