On Sunday was Nathan’s first Half Marathon and my 7th! It took place at Prince William Forest Park and was super hilly. The first and last 3 miles were all hills, and miles 8-10 got pretty hilly as well.It was a nice tree lined course, one that I had run last year for my first half. It was just as hilly then as it is now. LOL.
It was a pretty small race, so there wasn’t any crowd support except for the water stations. But it was a nice, and pretty, run through the trees. I love running through nature, much more than road races such as my half #6 two weeks ago.
After the half I felt pretty good. For a majority of the race Nathan and I followed the intervals: Run 30/walk 2:20/Run 30/Walk 3. But of course the last 3 miles were all hills, so we pretty much walked at the end.
We were both pretty sore after the race from the hills. He is still having a hard time walking, but that is understandable!
