I did it! Another postpartum PR! I improved my time on the Rock n Roll San Jose course by over an hour! (I was 8 months pregnant last year.) I bettered my time on my last half marathon a couple of weeks ago by 7 minutes!
Race weekend almost didn’t happen for me. It all started Thursday after work while driving to pick up baby from daycare. I heard a funny sound coming from my car and wondered what it was. When I arrived to my destination 10 minutes later, I heard the sound no one enjoys... the sound of air escaping quickly from your tire. I had a flat tire.
I'm so stoked that it is race weekend! Last year when I ran the San Francisco Giant Race for the first time, I was 29 weeks pregnant and I finished in 3:22:25. I'm looking forward to setting a huge course PR this year!
Out of the four half marathons I've ran since giving birth 8 months ago, not only was the OakTown Half my fastest half marathon, but I also felt the best during this half! After running the OakTown Half, I feel hopeful about my future postpartum running endeavors.
