2009 Country Music 1/2 Marathon

It was another great year at the CM 1/2 Marathon. This year we had two more family members join us. They made some changes to the course which added more up-hill in my mind, and it was about 15 degrees warmer than last year. We also had to make pit stops this year from all the drinking we did to keep hydrated, but in spite of these things we are still happy with the outcome. It was wonderful to accomplish our goal and finish once again.

This year Nathan and I actually finished together which was really nice. We both started strong and were on track for our goals of 2:15 and 2:20, but around 11 miles we both hit the wall. I don't know if it was the heat or not enough training or just an off running day. Officially we finished in 2:34:18, but we are both taking 6 minutes off for the potty line. :) That leaves us with 2:28 which still makes us both very happy.

Who wants to join us next year?

I think you can definitely blame it on the heat. Man, it was sooo hot! You guys did awesome. Is Lindsey ok??

30,000+ is too many people for me. You guys should run the M'boro 1/2 in Oct. Maybe we could actually find each other! :)
