I ran my 11th half marathon on Saturday.
This was my first international half marathon. It was the Espoo half marathon.
The route was absolutely gorgeous. The above picture was taken about 10 meters from the start line. And that’s what we saw for about half of the half marathon since a good many km’s were along the shore of southern Finland. The weather was perfect too, which makes for a great run.
I finished in 1:53:24. Not a personal best, but really, pretty good for me. My personal best is 1:45:07. I felt pretty good for most of the race and only felt a bit tired during the last 5k. But overall…I’m happy with the result and how I did. Here’s what happiness looks like after a good run.
