I’m back from a few days in San Francisco. I ran my third half marathon – the San Francisco Half Marathon last Sunday, and I finished the CA Dreamin’ Series and picked up my fancy jacket and medal. A race report will be posted on my personal blog: whatiruninto.com, so go there if you’re interested in reading my fun experience!
You didn’t think I’d leave the social media out of this post, did you? I foursquared the Golden Gate Bridge when I was running. At the Expo, I met Danica, the ChicRunner - she’s running blog royalty if you didn’t know. During the race, I accosted Running Green Girl, another running blogger from So Cal. And of course, after the race, I found Sheryl of Running in Pigtails (and my personal friend). w00t! I love that social media and blogging has integrated itself in real life sports like running.
Some accomplishments of note:
- I hit my “A” Goal of running the race in less than 3 hours!
- I shaved off 17 minutes from my first half marathon (Long Beach 2009)!
I’m really proud of myself. The first time I tried to run was 12 months ago. It originally took me three weeks to get up to ONE MILE. Quite an accomplishment to complete three half marathons, if I don’t say so myself.
Up next? I’m looking at training for the Las Vegas Rock N Roll Marathon this December. (Now who wants to join me?)
