Oh the weather outside is frightful…

Waking up to snow at Whistler: FABULOUS!

Waking up to snow the morning of your half marathon: not so fun 🙁

Actually the run wasn’t bad at all once we got running (and it was more sleet than snow, which eventually turned to rain. However, it’s now turned back into snow but I’m comfortable, warm and dry, so it doesn’t matter).

But I digress.

I was determined to follow the run/walk plan today, but I have to admit it was pretty difficult slowing to a walk as thousands of people swarmed all around. My official time was 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds, but on my watch it was 2 hours, 11 minutes and 54 seconds. Why the discrepancy? Because I chose the SLOWEST Port-o-Potty line in the entire race.

I was about 55 minutes in and finally decided to heed the call of my bladder. I had passed a few other loos but thought those were too busy (HAH!). All of us in line were getting antsy as runner after runner kept passing us. However, I did feel much better afterwards and sped up a bit to make up some time. Despite the cold downpour I finished strong (I’ll post some pictures later) and am nowhere near as sore as I was when I finished the Seafair half marathon this past summer. I guess there is something to be said for walk breaks!
