San Diego Half - Results Edition

I started my birthday month off with a BANG traveling down to San Diego to run a half-marathon with some members of The Group. We stayed with our running Mo-Pho friend Lee and his lovely family. I've got lots and lots of pics to share, but for now, I'll just say it was a great trip and a great race! I didn't hit my goal, but I did set a new PR (personal record) and had a blast traveling with Grandpa Max and the crew!

Gpa Max, RAWR, and Jose Cristo. Oh, and me and Allikeeno of course

Safari Run? Safari COSTUMES!
Proud Finishers! Man I'm short.
I'm excited to share my results, plus I don't want you all think the only thing I do is ski! I came in 33rd out of 369 in my division of females 25-29! Finishing time was 1:55:35; :35-seconds slower than my goal, but with the killer hills at miles 6 and 12, I am not at all upset! Here's a look at the race profile from Lee's watch and from my new Garmin 610. My best mile? A 6:05 pace - yup that was straight downhill!

Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all.

I just signed up to run my first full marathon in Portland in October! EEEK! Nervous and excited!
