Providence Half

I ran my 6th half on Sunday! I drove down to Providence to tackle 13.1 once again. After a pretty germy half in March (the flu struck at mile 3) my only goal for this race was to have fun and be healthy!
Naturally, it was rainy, but I think my best runs are in the rain so I just embrace it now! I saw some friends before the start and just enjoyed the pre-race atmosphere. I am really proud of how out of my head I stayed. I just took this as another long run but with a medal at the end.

I ran a solid race too! Despite a few steep hills I stayed steady and smiled the whole way. The course was beautiful and the rain wasn't bad at all. Around mile 11.5 I realized I was running next to one of my sports med doctors. He kept me consistent and strong through the finish line and I only picked his brain about my leg a little bit.

I couldn't have asked for a better race and am already excited for the next few races!

Congrats on your Providence half! My sister lives in Providence, so I came up and did the full a few years ago. I would love to do the half. The year I did it, it was WINDY! The part down my the water was crazy! You look like you had fun even in the rain!

Yay! Congratulations on your run and for embracing the rain. Sometimes we have a great time with good results when we don't put pressure on ourselves.
