A smile and a number five to commemorate my 5th half marathon! Lined up at the start for a completely staged pre-race pic. #centralpark #halfmarathon #nycruns #NYC #race #run #running #funning #training #trainingtofly (at Central Park - 72nd St Transverse)
Pre-race essentials! So I added up the digits and got 12, which to me signified that I had to beat my last half time from Kentucky 2012. AND I DID! :) #PR #race #run #running #NYCruns #CentralPark #inaugural #halfmarathon #training (at Central Park)
Freeze frame! Check me out at 19 seconds!! Grey shirt, neon yellow Nike hat, #1102.
This is the start of the Iron Horse Half Marathon in Midway, KY on Sunday, October 14, 2012—a beautiful race among rolling hills and horse country. It was the horses cantering freely alongside one another that kept me smiling for 13.1 miles. They ran gracefully throughout the wide open acres of land, and among the classic white fences, painting a beautiful autumn landscape. Top that scene with vibrantly colored leaves falling here and there, and a subtle breeze to fill the air…can you picture it?
Placed 11th in my age group at the Iron Horse Half Marathon on 10/14/12. Cut a total of 32.5 minutes off of my time, since my first #halfmarathon almost a year ago today, on 10/16/11. AND set a new #PR at 1:54:47. Guess I was a little lucky in good ol’ #Kentucky. :) What comes next—half number five, or my first ever full? We shall see. (Taken with Instagram)
A “sweet and salty” kind of moment. Brought to you by me, not Nature Valley. Post-race shot. Half marathon number four, check! PR? Check again!!!! :) #bestdayever #betteryou #running #halfmarathon #run (Taken with Instagram)
10/14/12: Iron Horse Half Marathon in Midway, #Kentucky. I’ll be bringin’ it for my 4th #halfmarathon this Sunday. This is what I trained for, this is what I do; this is my race and my time. #running #betteryou #nofilter (Taken with Instagram at Saul Good Restaurant & Pub)
Found this last night when I opened my empty suitcase to pack for #Kentucky. It’s a memento from my first #halfmarathon in #AtlanticCity with @n0silla_! It’s also a sign—and I’ll be wearing it so my bestie’s there in spirit on #raceday. :) (Taken with Instagram)
