|The Phoenix Marathon (1/2 course)|
Second, the weather. It was perfect. It definitely felt cool while we were waiting at the starting area. They had some campfires set up so we could stay warm. However, once we started running, the cool air felt wonderful. I loved the temps throughout the race and I felt fully comfortable running!
|Another Medal and another PR!|

The other great part about this race was that I got an awesome PR--2:12! I've been chasing 2:15 for my last couple of halfs and I was happy to beat it on Saturday. This PR is about 9 minutes faster than my previous PR. It's also a almost a full hour faster than the first half marathon I ran 6 years ago. It's crazy to think of how far I've come since then.
Also, I placed 11th for the Athenas! Not too shabby overall. Next big race-Marquee 1/2 Iron Tri!!
