I forgot to post my time from the Highlands Ranch Half Marathon yesterday.
I was waiting for the “official” time to come through.
I wanted to say a few more things. I really wanted to stress how hard those volunteers worked. The staff was super nice. No complaints about that. I know I said the race started late, that doesn’t bother me.
This is billed as a “premier race”. I’m not sure what that entails. I’m just thrown by this whole experience. I’ve never run a race quite like this before.
Again…my garmin puts me at 12.95 miles. I started it on the dot at the start line and stopped it exactly at the finish. I’m not sure where it went off but early on I noticed there was a problem.
The interesting thing is my Garmin has my time as 2:14:41 and the race has my official time as 2:16:41. Exactly two minutes off.
Color me confused.
Mile 6, I stopped to use the restroom. It was a quickstop. ha.
Mile 9 I was starting to really feel the lack of water and it was getting really hot.
Mile 12 had the worst uphill ever. I tried but I was pretty thirsty and wishing my husband were there with a big bottle of cold water.
I really did like the course but only because I ran it so well. Even with the hills. So with better support and better weather…I would have loved it.
