Hobble Creek Half Marathon race report

I’m cheating, I’ll come back with a nice and juicy race report later, but for now I’m exhausted and lazy :P.

A goal 2 hrs 10 min. (in my dreams)
B goal 2 hrs 13 min. (only if it's as downhill as they claim)
C goal 2 hrs 15 min (this one is the one I thought I could do if I pushed hard)
D goal 2 hrs 20 min, the goal I wanted back in 2006 and missed by 2 minutes.

Gun time 2 hrs 13 min
Garmin 2 hrs 12 min 26 seconds, woohoo!! 9+ minute personal record for me, yippee!!

then I got rear-ended on my way home :(. I’m ok and it looks like it’s just my bumper, so we’ll see. I’m going to veg out on the couch for awhile and recooperate. I promise to return with more details later, thanks so much for all of your support!

Yay Meadow, that is fantastic. You did great. I love the feeling of doing better than you expected. I liked that race better than Provo River, how about you? It was very similar, but they actually did mark the miles somewhat accurately. Did your Garmin register 13.1? Mine didn't! I think it might have cut out at some spots or something. But I was curious about that.

Sheree, no my Garmin got 12.98 miles or something like that. The mile markers seemed pretty accurate and the course was clearly marked. I think I would like the race better if it started at 6:30 or so, it got pretty darn hot out there! I haven't decided yet if I liked it better than the Provo half, I think the heat clouded my opinion of it :).

Oops, that was me, not Sarah- although I'm sure she'd be excited too if she knew!
