March madness half marathon, it was wet and cold at the beginning of the race, but warm enough that I felt comfortable running it with a long sleeve tech shirt and my american flag short shorts. My plan for the race was to take it out at about 6:15 pace, and drop throughout the race. That sorta happened. It was a weird race because I had to accept that I'm not in the best shape that I have been, and that running and racing isn't my number 1 priority right now, the MCAT and med school is. That was a strange and tough realization, and maybe not the best time to have that right in the middle of a race. Whatever. I ran pretty well, 6:10 average pace, finished top 10 (7th or 8th), passed someone right at the end so I could look super cool for Kelsey, and got a sweet looking dad hat for a top 25 finish.
Overall good race, loved the experience, and I just love racing and pushing myself.
