Hampton's Half And a PR!!

Hootiehoo! Ok, this race rocked! First off, I PR'd! By 6 minutes!

I'm so excited by this for a number of reasons:
  • it's not an easy flat course
  • last year this was my 3rd big race, so I had built up to my pace
  • I plain killed it

I worked pretty hard this year, even though at times I didn't think so, I managed to pull 10 minute miles, not stopping and I felt great all along the course. I have to say though that I think the official time was a bit off, unfortunately mt GPS died at mile 10, but I'm going to go with it...

Gym partner finished 4 minutes ahead, I'm so proud of her! This was her first race and she really worked it!

So now the question is, what's next?
