Race Recap

Well, I completed the Laughlin 1/2 marathon this past weekend, which was as hilly as south Florida. I think the only hills were the rocks on the trail. There is like 40 feet elevation change from the start to the half way turn around. It reminded me of South Florida. I set my pace for the first half at a 10 minute mile which was about the correct pace for me. I decided on the second half to slow it down to an 11:40 minute pace and play it safe on my ankle and tendon, since it was on a dirt road. I finished the race in 2:21:58 and felt great. Afterwards we went for Mexican fajitas.

Over all, the body felt great and had a great weekend. Back to training for the RNR Marathon.

I think, if I had known there were fajitas at the end, I would've run a bit faster :-)

Forget the race, how were the fajitas? That sounds like a perfect recovery meal to me!

Way to go! Get the runs in before Arizona turns to molten rock. :-)
