As a J&A Ambassador in 2015, I had registered for the Crawlin’ Crab. A hurricane ended up causing the race to be postponed so I asked to defer my registration to 2016. They were happy to accommodate my request. I was so excited about getting to complete the Shell Yeah challenge, a 5k on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday. The 5k went pretty well, I could tell right away I wasn’t going to PR, but held on to a pretty steady pace even as the rain started to pick up. I finished in 32:17 and then a downpour occurred just as I was getting my dry bag from the tent. The next day was hot and humid and I ended up finishing the half in 2:34:51. The last four miles of the race were pretty miserable once the heat and humidity had really settled in. Luckily the after-party was in full swing and I was able to enjoy it a bit before we had to head home in time for the Reading RunBuds book club.
