Women's Half Marathon Nashville results

Chip time: 1:42:03
Division place: 11/469 (dang, so close to top 10)
Gender place: 30/2823
Overall: 31/2911 (yes, there were a few dudes running)
The playlist favorite of the race: The Fighter
Most cramped body part: calves and feet. Darn you, Nashville hills!

Thanks, Donna (fellow Birmingham-ite at the race), for this pic!
More info to come on the race, fellow bloggers I met (spoiler: they were awesome), and the expo/race. 

But most important is that these results mean that McMillan says I now have the possibility of a 3:35 marathon. And if a soulless calculator says something, it's always true. Never question that.

  7. Hot dang! Nice job! But seriously why do you look so nice and normal after a half. Where is the crazy hair, the weird sweat marks, it is just not fair I tell ya. ;)

    1. I put about 30 hair ties in there so that it's like concrete buns! Plus, that was about 30 minutes after I was done so I could smile again. Before that I was like, should I vomit on this volunteer or in the bushes? So many choices.

  10. I think McMillan's underestimating you. He doesn't even know about how this was *just* a tune-up race!!

    Congratulations!! I'm so excited for and inspired by you. :)

    1. You should have said something!!! I needed a great distraction from those hills. Hope you had fun! And are you sore still today because I totally am.

    2. Awww, I would have loved to meet you! I told my runner husband last night (who is a MUCH more seasoned runner than me...this was my 1st half) that you're kind of like a runner celebrity for me since you're the first running mama blogging person I've ever followed (and the only one at this point). Please don't consider that weird. :) But YES, I am most definitely still sore today...

    3. Ha! Definitely let me know if we are running one of the same races again so that we can try harder to meet next time! And today is the first day I'm not saying "ouch" on ever step in the staircase.

    1. They did say that! Maybe they were including the 5K people too. And next month will be colder too, which always helps me run better. Less sweating and feeling like I'm gonna die if the sun stabs my eyes one more time.
