It's time for the re-cap of my Halloween half! The race was on Saturday and started just about Sundance in Provo Canyon. It went down the canyon and ended at the shops at Riverwoods. I was really nervous for a few reasons.
1. It was not only my first half, but my first race!
2. It's mostly downhill and I wasn't sure how my knees would handle it.
3. I was in Boston the week before the race and knew I wouldn't have enough time that week to get some good training in.
4. I hate running.
Let's be honest, concerns 1 through 4 (mostly 3 and 4) prevented me from ever even signing up for the race. I quit before it even started. It's a good thing I did though. I must've known I was going to be sick that morning and not able to run the race anyway.
We'll give that Thanksgiving 5K a shot instead.
