So this year I was lucky enough to get to do the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in San Francisco. Last year it was last minute, this year I got in using the second chance entry by logging my running on an app.
Let’s face it, I am not a very good runner. It is hard for me and I struggle every time. So why do I do it? It is a good challenge and I feel accomplished when I am done. Plus, the Tiffany’s box at the end of the race makes the pain a little more bearable. 😉
I was lucky enough to get to stay with my friend Amber so I saved some cost on a hotel room. She was even brave enough to go with me to Union Square so I can see my name on the Nike window and write my name on the “Make Your Mark” board.
This year there were 40,000 people. So. Many. People.
The bummer of course…I had a cold AGAIN this year! Sigh…colds just make everything hard…especially breathing. BUT, I finished! That is all that matters.
Here is hoping to hoping that I get in to race next year! Keeping my fingers crossed.
