Friends, remember a couple weeks ago when I entered the drawing to be chosen to run in the Nike Women's half marathon in San Francisco on October 14th? Read about it here. Well, the results are in and my name was drawn! I actually entered as a team with two great running friends and we will be running together! Remember, this is the same annual race where I ran my first full marathon in 2009. I am excited to go back and quite relieved I will be running half the distance! It is a beautiful course with great views of the Golden Gate bridge and being an all women's race, lots of encouragement and exciting messages along the way. The best part? Besides completing 13.1 miles, each finisher receives a Tiffany's Necklace!
There I am above crossing the finish line (me in purple) after 4 hours and 27 minutes of running 26.2 miles! The theme of the race that year was "Run Like a Girl" and I still wear my Tiffany's necklace! I think the theme of this race is now "I Run to Be" and the necklaces are different each year so I can't wait to sport both. I might even put them on the same chain!
Call me crazy but yes I am doing another half marathon! Look back through my running and racing history here:)
