Since I ran this race the past two years, I knew what to expect on the race course. I really took advantage of the first half of the course and ran a pretty strong first 2.3 miles - actually on my "fall 5K PR goal" pace. As I took on the hill on Luckie Street, my hips started to tighten and with a half marathon in less than 11 hours, I knew that I needed to be smart. I ended up finishing just shy of my PR and beat last year's time by over a minute!
