Half PR

I raced the two rivers half marathon 2 weeks ago
As a prep for the Pittsburgh marathon
My goal was to feel confident in marathon pace
Race day perfect conditions 
I felt good
I had on course one honey Stinger gel which saved me at mile 5, 3 Honey Stinger gummies, and 2 pieces of run gum - needed more
The race went good
Felt depleted at Miles 8-9.5 but then picked it back up to pace for the end
4th women and 2nd AG with a new PR 
Listened to my wonderful coach and I feel confident for Pittsburgh goals!
