A new half marathon PB for me!
I am pleased with my race. After my less than stellar performance in Portland, I needed a good race to get back on track. And Providence gave me that opportunity. The weather was perfect (cool, a bit of cloud cover, and a great cool breeze when the sun was out in full force); the organization was superb (excellent volunteers, frequent water stations) and the route was perfectly lovely. We ran through lovely historic neighborhoods, along a river, and through a few commercial districts. There were a few BIG hills, but I plugged along. The crowds weren’t huge, but they were vocal and enthusiastic.
Basically the stars were aligned. Now if I can only get my body aligned!!
