Half Marathon #13 Complete

Earlier this morning, I completed my 13th Half Marathon – adding to the list that somehow already includes 3 FULL marathons! It wasn’t my best, wasn’t my worst, and this course is just a weird one. Nothing majorly challenging, but at a whole a variety of terrain. The weather started out cool and breezy, but then warmed up throughout. Once again I ran into some calf and quad cramps around Mile 9, which derails what would have been a nice finish time on par with my PR at this race from 2014. It’s a short two week rest until Tinkerbell and the Pixie Dust Challenge at Disneyland!
