This past Halloween I ran the Miami Beach Halloween Half Marathon. My goal race is the Fort Lauderdale 13.1 in a couple of days so I knew I’d treat the Halloween Half as a long training run. I managed to do that but honestly, I don’t think I could have run it fast if I had wanted to. The weather had been nice leading up to the race, then on race day it was disgustingly humid. I ran with my friend Damaris and the first 10 miles or so were fine as it was overcast. Then the sun came out from behind the clouds and things got ugly. I won’t go into much detail because It’s been two weeks now and I’ve forgotten but by mile 11 or 12, I just wanted to sit down and cry. I did finish though, even if it was my slowest half marathon yet and possibly my slowest long run too. I did have fun for most of it and I did run long, which I suppose is all that matters!
It was Halloween so costumes were in order!
