Lacey things and half marathon musings

June 18, 2013

Not two things you think go together, eh? This is the outfit to the SF Marathon Expo last Friday (which the fam and I ran on Sunday).

A few of you who have seen my updates on Twitter and Instagram have asked me about the marathon. Sooo about the marathon: the San Francisco Marathon is divided into two halves. You can either choose to run the full marathon, the first half, or the second half. Last year, my family and I ran the second half and this year, we all ran the first half. So you could say we ran the entire marathon course over a span of two years:)

This was my seventh half marathon and I PR’ed by six seconds: 1:38:15, which translates to 7:30 minute mile pace (I got 1:38:21 last year) and I placed 1st in my age division and 13th overall out of all the women.

I was probably the most dressed up out of everyone at the expo hehe (which kind of stunk because the people working there definitely knew I was the same person when I came back to the various sample booths for seconds; yes Larabar, I’m lookin’ at you…).

I really love this dress for the v-neck back it has (is that even a real word to describe it? anyway…). It’s one of those dresses that looks better when you wear it than on the hanger (it looks kind of boring on the hanger). Mom and I took these pictures while we were waiting for the bus to transport us to the expo. It was funny, we were right outside of an office building and a whole bunch of people were taking smoking breaks outside. They certainly got a show, watching me take outfit pictures!
