Here we are again, the most monotonous, predictable post on this lackadaisical blog, on a positive side it means summertime! This race marks my 10th barefoot half marathon.
Basically the same formula I use for all half marathons, train 8 weeks (if you call it training), it’s more like running 3 days a week which I do all the time, except running longer on the weekends, which is maxing out at a few 10 milers.
It was a beautiful morning on race day, but was going to get hot by 9AM it was already in the 80’s but zero humidity, so to me quite comfortable. Came in at 1:51:38 which I was happy with it. I did stop at mile 8 to hit a port-a-potty, first time ever I stopped to pee during a half marathon, I was kind of pissed (no pun intended) at myself I had to stop but just couldn’t hold it any longer, my time would of been cut shorter, but oh well.
