I love this medal!!
The Hyannis Marathon, Half Marathon & Marathon Team Relay was held this weekend in Hyannis, Ma (Cape Cod). Me and a group of friends were all signed up to do the half marathon and what a perfect day it turned out to be!! The temps were low to mid 50s, one of the warmest days we have had in a while. I'll keep the recap short, as we all know that sometimes race recaps can be very detailed and very long. So I will not bore you with the details. So I'll just hit the highlights.

The races started on time and for the first three or four miles it felt tough as I worked out the kinks. Only after that did I start to feel good. I had no real plans for the race except to come close to or maybe even PR from my last Half which was 1:36:25. I honestly felt good all the way through. Not at one point did I feel like I was struggling. I had plenty of good one on ones with a few people along the course with me winning most of the battles. Some were a little tough especially early on, so I let hem go as I did no want to burn out so quick.
As I past the 10 mile mark I decided to pick it up a notch and go for it. Only at about mile 12 did I look at my Garmin to see what my time was. I knew I would be close to PR if I could hold pace.
Look at that last mile!!!
Garmin time 1:36:38 - Official time 1:36:22 - a PR by 3 seconds! Woot, woot!!
Ha! I'll take it!!
After the race my good friends with the hotel room, Adam & Monica, let us shower up in their room. The shower was clutch! Nothing better than feeling brand new after a good race! Thank you soo much!! We owe you big time!!!
After hanging out for a while a few of us decided to out for lunch at "Not Your Average Joes"...
Great times with great friends....
Hyannis was a great race for everyone. Weather was perfect, the course was beautiful and many of us PRd or came close to it. A very successful day for everyone!! Congrats to everyone!!
