Going into the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Half Marathon, I wondered if I'd be able to pull off a postpartum PR. I logged quite a few miles in January, but many of the miles were walking miles. I questioned my ability to run faster, especially over the course of 13.1 miles. Even as I stood in the starting corral I wondered, "Can I really pull off a sub 11 minute pace for 13+ miles?"
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again... I love running races in San Francisco! I’ve ran several different races in the Golden City, but never the Kaiser Permanente Half Marathon. I can’t wait to run the San Fran Half Marathon in exactly one week from today!
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.
