The YMCA Evansville Half Marathon was on October 7th and is probably one of my favorite races to do. Part of the reason is I like the training program leading up to it, but I also know the course very well, it is pretty flat and usually runs pretty fast in my opinion.
|Ahh, early morning. Bring on the caffeine!|
At mile 11 I had an "oh crap I could get a PR if I really try these last two miles" moment and so I really pushed myself to finish strong (and my hands were really really cold and I couldn't wait to warm them up). I did and I got a PR by about a minute over last year...yay me!

|Nothing like a porta-potty with attitude.|
|One of my favorite parts, running the warning track at Bosse Field.|
|We did it! Lauren was so full of awesome, finishing her first half in 2:06:53.|
