This week's recap is a little bit better told by picture. I was in taper mode because I ran the Baltimore Half Marathon with some friends over the weekend! So the actual running recap portion really only involves Sautrday.

Friday we (Joel and I) flew into Baltimore for the race and to see my old college friend, Lisa. We were roommates once upon a time so we are real close. She took us straight to the expo to pick up our packets. This expo was impressive and well organized (more on this to come).

Saturday was race day!!! I'm pretty sure I drove Joel crazy. I'm a bit of a morning person - especially on race day. I get so excited when I know people running with me! It was Joel and Lisa's first half, so I was giddy for them! Long story short (I'll give the long in a full race recap), Joel had a bum knee and decided to hang back and run with me. My goal was to get under 2 hours. PR!! I would have been happy with anything 1:59:59 and under! So pumped!!
