Race pictures from the Run to the Pub Half Marathon

Thanks to my sister and my brother in law I have some pictures from the Run to the Pub race Saturday.

Prerace, waiting for it to be time to load the buses out to the start line, we had to take a picture in front of a Bobcats sign.


At the start line, trying to decide if I should take off my green pullover or not.
 (Note to self..next time take it off!)

 About 6 miles in, so happy to see my husband not only for the mental pick me up but so I could toss him my green pullover.  I was tired of having it tied around my waist!

Coming in to the finish, so happy to see the finish line!


and I better pass one more person before the end. I like how I am heel striking in the first picture here, but it doesn't appear to be a heel strike in the second picture.


the after party.  A free beer.  I had the Guiness and showing off our hard earned medals. You maybe can't tell, but I was FREEZING here.  I went and got my coat and pants on shortly afterwards.


Sunday I rested and did some yoga. 
Monday I got out and did an easy 5 mile run with some walking mixed in on some cow trails.  I also did a 30 minute circuit workout that was part ZWOW 60 and part I made it up.

  1. Great pictures of you at the finish! Even when I'm exhausted there's just something about having to pass someone at the finish that makes me find some more energy. Wonderful job to both you and your sister!

  13. What a cute race outfit!! Your pics are very typical- a lot of times it looks like I am heel striking, but i think it has something to do with the timing and that's not really how my feet hit. Hope you had a great time with your friend :)

  16. I love your outfit! You've got spirit! That looks like a lot of fun! I always get cold at the start and I want to wear my sweatshirt and I always regret it. I am nervous about that for Boston because I was going to wear a throwaway sweater but then I will probably be cold at the end!
