I used to run and be pretty good at a local level. I pretty much gave racing up when my ex left, my kids were 4 and 7 and too young to be left alone and I certainly didn't have the money for a sitter for training. Well, now that they are older and I can sneak runs in when they are on playdates and at school, I've been able to run a bit more. Sooooo, this weekend I ran my first race (1/2 marathon) in almost 4 yrs! I didn't come close to my PR, but I ran under 2 hrs which was my goal. The Baltimore Half was so much fun! I'd never imagined I'd be cheered on by so many cigarette smoking old men and step on a dead rat and then gummy bears and have to scrape them from my shoes. Post race crabs and beer were an awesome touch too! I feel like I'm getting the last part of my life back on track

Just had to post this pic, can you eat a crab standing up in the rain?

Congrats! That was a great time and not even a PR! I saw the photo before I read the post and thought "Baltimore! " because not many races have crab at the finish line.

BTW, you look marvelous!!
