Page Fourteen 2015

The day after an epic Pi Day is really hard to top.  We got up at an insanely early hour to meet at Bull City Running Company at 4:30 to travel just down the road to Cary for the Tobacco Road half marathon.  At the time, I remember thinking how fun it sounded to run it when I signed up.  The running of it actually was fun, but the getting up wicked early for a local race is NOT.  We got there almost two hours before the 7am start, and hung out in the freezing cold inside a tent to wait.  The half itself was a lovely out and back on the ATT.  We went out with a conservative pace, everyone said they were just planning to run it to complete it and we were aiming for a 2:30-2:40 finish time.  I had my full in a week, so best not to overdo it.  As it was, we stuck to the intervals, and managed to finish in just over 2:30.  We stayed together for the most part until around mile 9 when Tracy and Susan broke off and finished about a mile per minute faster in the last 3-4 miles.  It was Nancy’s first half and it was a pleasure to watch her cross the finish line.
