Woke up today ready to run the hills of Great Bay Half Marathon. Locco Running puts on a great race. I ran every hill until mile 12 the semi flat part. At mile 12, I got nauseous then my asthma acted up. Did not like walking and running the last miles but I wanted to finish running. It was windy and in the 40s but who knows why had bad asthma attack at the end. Maybe I ran each hill with a purpose and hard but I did not want to repeat what happen 4 years ago. We all have in our mind what we want to accomplish but the body doesn’t always want to cooperate. There is were mind of body comes in to push us through the tough times.
My favorite part of the race was the dirt road. I am so ready to run the trails at Maudslay State park but they are still treacherous with ice. Hoping in 2 weeks we will all be running trails. I see the race as good training for Pinelands 25K trail race May 25th.
