Running Notes: Omaha Half Marathon

Omaha half marathon

Elizabeth and me right before the Omaha Half 9/18/16

I just completed my second Half Marathon on September 18.  This was a big event for me on a personal level because it took place in my hometown, Omaha, NE and my bff from junior high and I ran it together.  I finished with a PR that I’m very pleased with.  I started as a brand new runner on June 30, 2015. I’m enjoying tracking my progress and challenging myself to keep improving. In addition to continuing my training for various upcoming half marathons, I’m also working towards a goal of reaching 1,000 road and trail miles for 2016.  As of today, I’m at 788 miles, none of which were run on a treadmill.  Here’s a break down of all my races so far.
