Soaring Wings Half 2011

by on Oct.29, 2011, under Races

Finally have good information on my injury which is a muscle or ligament pull right at my pelvic bone.  It’s been there for awhile but as it gets better I run more and so now it is a chronic injury.  The good news is I now have stretches that will loosen it up and have been instructed to ice after every run which I can tell will work as I sit here and blog my run with an ice pack between my legs.  This will keep the swelling down and help it to heal. 

With that in mind, I set out to run the Soaring Wings Half Marathon yesterday as an easy run, not a race.  Curt was pacing the 1:50 group so I decided to run with him and if I needed to let him go I would.  That’s what I did, about mile 8.  It was hard to see some runners I knew pass me after mile 8 (runners that I would normally finish in front of) but I wasnt’ in a race frame of mind and focused on finishing without walking and not getting injured.  Finished 1:52:22 and finished strong.  I passed my watch to Curt at mile 7.5 and he brought his group in at 1:49:48, an excellent pacing job.  Below are my splits for the first 8 miles and my finishing time.  The goal is to pick up my training, heal up and finish the Houston half marathon in January with a time that starts with a 1:3_:__. 

Madeleine and Anne Elizabeth did the kids run the night before!
