The Recap You’ve All Been Waiting For

Go St Louis Half Marathon!


So I decided not to race this but just run comfortably. I set a goal of 1 hour 45 minutes. I actually set it thinking I was going to race and thought it was a pretty high goal and that it would be hard for me to do.

….let’s just say I hit the goal and I didn’t even race it!!!!


Here are my splits:

mileage time
mile 1 7:56
mile 2 8:02
mile 3 8:04
mile 4 7:54
mile 5 7:58
mile 6 8:01
mile 7 7:56
mile 8 8:02
mile 9 7:49
mile 10 7:57
mile 11 7:46
mile 12 8:26
mile 13 8:10
.21 1.36

Average pace: 8:00/mi

This course was EXTREMELY hilly. I train on hills everyday but not one’s that last a mile long. The last two miles my body just died on me. It was tired haha and didn’t want to do work anymore.

I wonder what I would’ve ran if I actually raced.

Picture Time:

I will have to post official pictures once they are up, but for now these are the pictures Alex took of me.











I must say, my leg muscles looked pretty good in those first few pictures 🙂 I can’t wait to see what the official pictures look like. Hopefully they took some of me actually running.

there you have it!!
