What a fun race!! About 5000 runners were signed up. Though it didn't seem as crowded as that.
I followed Coach Lisa's instructions and warmed up for 10 minutes, ran easy the first two miles of the race, then did a run/walk combo, and kicked it in the last two miles.
I was hoping for a 2 hour time---I made it in 1:56:26!! I'm real pleased as I'm just starting to get back into the shape I was last year and it seems with my Coach's new plan, my body is responding quicker.
I've added the Tucson Marathon to my list of races for this year and I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday there as it is close to my real birthday. Coach Lisa will be there with a bunch of the folks she's coaching, so it should be a fun time!!
