Brooklyn Half Recap

I was super excited about the Brooklyn Half ever since registration opened months earlier. But then as it came closer I was getting pretty anxious. I lost a month of training due to illness and travel and I wasn’t feeling as prepared as I was for RnR DC. Originally my plan was to try and PR which would mean finishing in 2:28 or under. But then I decided time be damned, just go have a good race.

Mmmm......

It’s been a very inspiring weekend! Getting updates from Pump on Saturday during his marathon & watching the NYC marathon on tv AND seeing Drewinpursuit post pictures from his run during the NYC marathon today has got me thinking.
Maybe just maybe I’ll aim a little higher next year & do a half marathon. Now I’m not a great runner. Truth is that I can’t run a full 5k, I take walk breaks pretty often.
So what makes me think I can attempt 13.1 miles?! Heck, I don’t know but I think I’d like to try!

drewinpursuit replied to your photo: 13.1/39.3 = done. so far my impression of this…

Agreed. I finished saying to myself that I didn’t even want to do tomorrow. I will, but only because I’m a tenacious bastard. Glad you finished we’ll at least!

i’m glad it’s not just me.   and yeah, that’s basically the only reason i’m doing it too.  

plus, by 5:30 in the morning, i will have convinced myself that it wasn’t so bad.

but it was.  it really was.
