I'm a bit late in this post, but I got slammed by Women's 5k race directing/sequestering/dog limping/PTSD fire cat fostering/ALJ applying/and a bunchofotherstuff. But, last Saturday, I ran the Alamo Run Fest inaugural half marathon.
I'm continuing my 'training plan' from January - run fewer than 10 miles during the week, then pull a long run out of somewhere on the weekend - dumb, dumb, dumb. But, this run went to the West Side, where very few races are run. And, they held it, so I had to come. The last time I raced on the West Side, I was chased by stray dogs (2nd or 3rd best time ever), but this time, I only saw 5 strays, so I was pretty slow. The first 12 miles were fine, but I really felt the lack of training in the last looooong, straight, Alamodome finish in view, but it's not getting any closer, stretch.
So, of course, those are the only pics I have - and they sure are the ugliest.
Here I am, pretending to be normal for a couple of strides..
Thanks to capstonephoto.com for the pics - I'm sure you don't mean that bottom bit. If you do, I AM buying one of these pics and have no money, so suing me is a bust.
