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?"
San Francisco remains as one of my favorite places to run. The views, the people, the smells and the sounds are amazing! Race weekend I had not one chance to run, but TWO... a shakeout fun run on Saturday followed by the half marathon on Sunday!
I'm so excited to be running Rock n Roll San Francisco this weekend for the second year in a row! Last year, I ran it while pregnant. This year, that baby is now 4 months old!
As stated previously in my pre-Giant Race blog post, I was really looking forward to running the Giant Race in San Francisco! This race definitely did not disappoint. It's difficult to believe that the race was already two weeks ago. What's even more surprising is that my next half marathon is in two weeks (Rock 'n' Roll San Jose)!
