Lace Up Riverside Half Marathon Recap {Podcast}

Lace Up Race Series – last one for the year!

– My Half Marathon finish time: 1:45:40 – pace: 8:03

Felt good. Wanted to use this as my speed work for the week. Slowed for a second to talk to Pam. No kick at the end.

– Theme: Reindeer Run!

– Course: Hill at the start and a few nice sized hills during the race but I wouldn’t call it hilly.

– Weather: Cold! For me (and me only).

– Runner perks: So many runner perks!!

Reindeer Antlers. Santa Hats. Santa was there! Food trucks. Gear check. Red tee. Free print outs of pics from Instagram. Free race photos.

– Favorite part: I love the food trucks and free race pics!!

– Do it again? Yes!

RER Awards for the week {Podcast}:

1st: Vegas for his final fight.
