Half Marathon No.9 – Just pure fun!

When a race like the Georgia Publix Half Marathon (2014) that has a reputation of a brutally hilly course can produce a picture like this,  the race report can only be one word (or three) – FUN with FRIENDS!

So this race report is more of a picture slide show and less words. If I must say something – tough course but great race, lots of people. I ran with my running buddies and could’ve run 5 more miles after finishing. Whether it was because I was better prepared or because we slowed down for the last 5-6 miles, I will never know.

We started and finished together!
(Am I the only person deliriously happy at mile 12?!)

Running Vs. Racing – The pictures tell the story. So many smiles can only mean that I ran nowhere near to racing effort.

Being silly after the race trying to get out of wet clothes. The “portable changing towel” design should be patented!

A post-race massage in our tent. Yes, Please!! I’m forever spoilt now! Bliss!


I guess this means that I will have to lookout for another half marathon to properly race with some decent effort. I am ready to stop goofing and get serious. Well, not entirely, but just a teeny bit serious ;)
