Gulf Coast Half Marathon in Gulf Shores...Marathon Training Week 10

13.41 miles/2:34:23 (Course seemed a little long but I'm not good at running the tangents either)
Average pace- 11:31

This was a training run for marathon training...10-12 miles was on the schedule so we figured why not run for a medal??!!

It was hot, foggy, and humid! The first 4 miles were yuck but after that I felt great!!! The route was pretty but a little challenging because at mile 1 we ran up the Intercoastal Waterway Bridge...and then we had to do it again at mile 12! But I did it!!! It was super hard but I ran it with no walking!!!

Here we are around mile 5 in the Gulf State Park!

At mile 10...knowing that at mile 12 we are going to have to run up that bridge behind us...again!

Here we all are at the post race party at Lulu's!

Here's my friend Katie (who I haven't seen in a long time)! Today was her first half marathon!!! I actually ran into her on the course around mile 6...she was running strong! So proud of her!!!

At this race, the water stops competed for money for their favorite charity so the people were so much fun! An overall great race that I will definitely run again next year!!! I just love the Gulf Coast Half Series!
