Let’s start with this: I’m sore. In every place imaginable.
The good news? I finished the Seaside Half Marathon. I actually moved 13.1 miles and exercised for 3 hours and 25 minutes.
Here are my stats:
The worst miles:
The best miles:
Here’s me at the halfway turn. I know. Yikesies. [My desire to give you a glimpse of the experience is apparently greater than my desire to have any sense of pride. Sorry.]
And here I am at the finish line!
I know I know. 3 hours and 25 minutes is tortoise speed. But I totally enjoyed the experience which made it worth it to be a bit tardy to the finish line.
I also totally enjoyed my HALF MARATHON! playlist. Like whoa. Majorly. And so here it is. Please forgive the 2-3 songs with [EXPLICIT] lyrics. I was given a few songs as gifts and they have some yucky language. Don’t buy those.
These are all Top 40/Pop/Rap kind of songs. I needed strong beats to keep my legs movin’. I got to listen to my HALF MARATHON! playlist, uh, twice. [I’m slow, remember?] [Also- you can click on the images to see the lists bigger.]
And, as previously mentioned, I had a LAST MILE! playlist. It was really great to get to start it. Like, “Whoa, here it is. Time for the LAST MILE! playlist. That’s weird. And cool.” [My thoughts were obviously really deep at this point of the race.]
Overall, I give the experience two thumbs up. I walked a lot, I danced a little to my HALF MARATHON! playlist, and every muscle in my right leg and all but one muscle in my left leg are sore x 100.
But it was TOTALLY worth it.
And listen, if you’ve ever considered participating in a race like this, DO IT.
Trust me, if I can do this, so can you. And, you’ll have a faster time than me.
It’s just true.
