- Toughest half marathon course I've ever run
- I'm pretty sure the first 4 miles were all uphill
- It started to get flat and normal around mile 7
I'm pretty bummed I didn't run this morning especially after training for it over the past month or so, but after I heard how difficult the course was I think I would have been more sick after if I had run it. Plus, I went out for a short walk with the doggie this morning and was exhausted when I came back so I'm thinking running 13.1 miles worth of hills might have killed me.
One major bonus for the weekend was I had my mom to take care of me while I was sick which is always nice. I still tried to celebrate Mother's Day with her as much as possible and we ended the weekend with brunch at Anthony's with the McFath's who did run the Kirkland half and had those wonderful things to say in the bullets up there.
I just went searching through my computer for pics of me and mom but could only find ones of her with babies...hmm...is she hinting at something?

QUESTION: Have you ever had to not run in a race before because you were sick or injured? How did it make you feel? I'm not gonna lie, I'm still bumming a bit about it and I'm even considering running a training run next weekend of 13.1 miles to make up for it...is that crazy?
