I trained very little for this race and actually haven’t even laced up in over a week. I knew this race wasn’t going to be my best, but going into it with only the goal of finishing actually helped me enjoy it so much more.
I’ll start training for the Berkeley Half in a few weeks, and this run definitely pumped me up. It’s crazy how much adrenaline, muscle memory and will power can make up for poor training. Though I wouldn’t recommend it.
I ran the second half of the marathon last year, the first half this year and completed the Half It All Challenge. Hope to do the full marathon next year!
And like every other race I’ve done in San Francisco, I’ll be running with flowers in my hair.
