2018 Baltimore Half Marathon

Raced on

This was my first official half marathon. I ended up with a time of 2:08:35.

I was excited for my first race. The experience was wonderful. I didn’t expect the crowds to keep me so motivated and help me push through. I normally needed to rest during my long runs, but for this I kept running the entire time.

I had already run this distance before, but never officially. Before this point I had only run with at most two other people. I had been living in Baltimore for a few years by this point, but this run took me around areas I wasn’t very familiar with.
