This was my second time running this race. I completely forgot how difficult this course truly is! Picture 13.1 miles of never ending rolling hills and you've got the Somerset Stampede half. Although, it is difficult, it's one of my favorites! It is a smaller race as I think most run the 5K.
I earned a new half marathon PR. It's nothing to write home about, but a PR nonetheless. I was 3 seconds away from breaking 1:40 too. oh well, I am not beating myself up over it. My time last year on this course was 1:46 and some change!! So to run this over 6 minute faster, I'll take it.
Finish Time: 1:40:02
2nd out of 12 in my age group
3rd female overall
21st out of 134 overall
They actually had people out on the course taking pictures this year. I look forward to their web site being updated with them so I can score a couple and add them to this post.
