Saturday morning we hopped in the car and headed up to Albuquerque for another half marathon. We decided to go up a day early, pick up our packets and stay in a hotel. This was such a smart move on our part.
The race started promptly at 6:30am and it was a gorgeous run!!! I wish I had stopped to take a few photos but I was focused on not tripping over myself haha. Part of the run went behind the Albuquerque zoo so we got a nice view of the Elephant enclosure, it was awesome.
The rest of the run was primarily along the Rio Grande (hence the name of the race). It was absolutely gorgeous, it was only 66 degrees and it barely reached 70 degrees by the time we were finished.
My knee and ankle started to give me fits around mile 12, my entire goal for the rest was to best my 10 mile time (since we have the 10 Miler in the Heat this weekend), I shattered my previous time by 10 minutes.
We had a great time and can't wait to come back to Albuquerque in September for another half.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
