At the 18km mark I hit the wall. I went from a 5:40/km pace to a sudden 6:40/km pace. It’s all I could do. What I really wanted to do lay down and cry for a while. I gutted it out. I finally found what my limit feels like. it’s been 2 years of racing to finally take a leap and try to push hard enough to find how hard I can actually push. I know!
Turned out to be my 2nd best Half Marathon time of 2:01:xx
I am VERY pleased with the total effort, but I may be injured, right foot. We’ll see by tomorrow. I may just be race sore.
Full race report later…
