Race Report: Just Cuz 7 Half Marathon

Look, it's been almost a month since my last post - so I guess that means that I ran another race.

Yes, yes I did.  This was my third time running the "Just Cuz" in my small hometown of Pocatello, Idaho.  Every year that I run it I do better, but this time - I got under 2 hours!  WAHOO!

I love running in this race.  It's 8.5 miles of fast downhill.  It has a different theme every year (this year was Zombie Apocalypse).  And I get to see my family that still lives in Idaho that I don't see much as much as I should. 
This is my second under 2 finish - and this comes after a month of running only once a week, and skipping the long runs in the two weeks leading up to the race. (We were in Disneyland, and who wants to be bothered with running 12 miles when you are in Disneyland?)

Finish time: 1:59:07.  Yay for me!
I look like a zombie, right?

Next spring is looking to be fast - if I can keep up running through the winter.

But I have to be honest, I am SO ready for a break.  I've been running weekly since January and I'm tired.  Or burned out.

Anyway, I ran a race. It's my second best finish time ever and I'm so excited about it.

I don't have the time to do this race report justice, but I don't want to keep putting it off.

Maybe I'll come back when I have more time...

Or maybe I'll just post pictures from Disneyland.
