Surfside Beach Half Marathon
I ran laps at the track Friday before heading down to Surfside Beach, Texas to run the Surfside Beach Half Marathon this morning. I had run the full marathon there 6 or 7 times, but never the half. I felt fine for about 10 miles, but really began to tire after that. I was even tempted to walk some, successfully resisted. I am not sure if it was the sand or the heat and humidity, but it was probably my worst half marathon ever. I finished in 3:22:44 (4th in the 70-74 age group). I have another half marathon in Spring in the morning. Hopefully, I will be okay.
