Lake George Half-Marathon

On Saturday. April 23rd, I ran the Lake George Half Marathon! 13.1 miles through the village of  Lake George, NY.

The day before we drove up to the registration site to pick up our packages. The pick-up was about 1 hour away so I was a little annoyed when we got there and they didn’t have our numbers yet. They told us that we could get our numbers the next morning before our race. So basically we didn’t have to drive an hour on a day off to pick up the numbers. Whatever, we did get our t-shirts!! I only race for the t-shirts.

Look how beautiful it was outside the day before!!

Unfortunately, it wasn’t such great weather on race day. I woke up to rain.

Lots of pouring rain….and sleet…and about 40 degrees!!!

I was very unhappy and getting little down on myself about the race.

I’m smiling in the picture but was really really grumpy.

Since it was raining, I left my camera in my car, so there are no pictures of me and my friends crossing the finish line.

Here I am back at the car. I’m soaking wet!!! So wet and cold, I couldn’t even bend my fingers. Thank goodness for dri-fit!!

I ran 2:23:53. My goal was to run under a 2:30 so I was VERY happy with my time. It was so much fun to run a race with 4 great friends. We stayed together until the last 2 miles and then we separated by a couple of minutes.

I think the half marathon bug might have bitten me. I’m already thinking about signing up for another!!
