Second Half In the Bag!

Well here’s another 2013 goal I can check off! Yesterday I completed the Colonial Half Marathon.  It started and ended on my school’s campus so I really had no excuse, I had to sign up. Here was my motto for the race.headband

Let me tell you, it was not a walk in the park. It was hill after hill after hill after hill. The last few miles were almost comical because I felt like around every corner was another uphill climb. I had no idea Williamsburg was hiding all those hills.

I started out pretty fast because I was feeling good, but the hills took a toll. By the middle of the race I definitely started slowing down.  I remember seeing the Mile 9 marker and thinking, “forget my time, I just need to finish.” My mile splits are very uneven but I ended up coming in at 2:02 which is an improvement from my 2:04 at the Richmond Half.  I dropped a couple minutes, but the effort was much more substantial.

Here are a few of the tunes that got me through the 13 miles:

1. Troublemaker by Olly Murs (feat. Flo’Rida)

2. End of Time by Beyonce

3. C’Mon by Kesha

4. What About Us by The Saturdays (feat. Sean Paul)

5. Say Somethin by Austin Mahone

On Friday we shall review all the awards season fashion, I hope you’ve been paying attention!

  1. Well done for doing it! I think there’s something odd about hills – they seem to materialise during runs. Plus there never seems to be any downhill sections, which I’m sure is violating some law of physics!
