My bedtime was 15 minutes ago, but I couldn't let the day end without a quick post to remember my 3rd Raceversary (I have no idea how to spell it, but you know what I'm talking about...). It was exactly 3 years ago today that I ran my very first race - the Big Sur Half Marathon!
I signed up for it on a whim and:
- Didn't know what "wicking clothing" was (I used the race shirt during the race). - Had never heard of "taper" before. - Ran my 2 longest distances (9 and 10 miles) the 2 weekends leading up to the race. - Wore a fuel belt for the first time during the race. - I could barely walk after I was done.
I had no idea it was the beginning a new hobby addiction.
Fifteen half-marathons later and I can still say that it remains my favorite half - by far!
