The Publix GA 1/2 Marathon

It is 3 days after my 2nd 1/2 Marathon and I am still feeling the effects of all of Downtown Atlanta's hills. Sunday was almost perfect. The GOOD: weather, good music on the ipod, great volunteers, Georgia Force Cheerleaders at LIL 5 Points and ended with me getting a PR of 3:27:01 (4 min faster than my first 1/2 Marathon), The BAD: Hill after Hill after Hill, Not making my goal time of 3:17 or faster, Leg cramps from mile 10-12, and finish line confusion (ran out of food for runners so we had to wait 20-30 min for supplies to be restocked) The UGLY(or just plan crazy) The costumes..... From the couple dressed as Scooby Doo and a bottle of mustard, or the guy playing the guitar in only a cowboy hat and underwear.... All in all a good day and I got new BLING so I am happy


  1. Congratulations on the PR! Especially with all those hills! I'm supposed to be running my second half marathon in 45 days and I'm a little nervous about it. I hope its easier than the first time!

  2. Hi Kelly... The race itself felt easier till about mile 9... then the hills started to kick my a**. I have a 8k next week and have 1 race a month (atleast) for the rest of 2011. ALready have 3 half marathons for 2012
