Busy week, love all the photos! YOu make me want to race! My next half is the Annapolis Half Marathon in May — can’t wait! thanks for linking up with #BestFoot today! — Ericka @ The Sweet Life (sweetlifeericka.com)
I ran the Love Run Philly too. Running in the cold rain wiped me out for the rest of the day!
Yay for a PR and another great week!
I ran the love run too! And got a PR as well! What a wild weather experience. In my 6 years of running I’ve only run one other half marathon in downpours as bad as yesterday.
Yes, it was miserable. I ran another half several years ago in similar conditions. Congrats on the PR.
Congrats on the PR. You rock!
