Memory Monday:2018 ING GA Half Marathon

Today's Memory Monday is dedicated to the 2018 ING GA Half Marathon. This race was my first half marathon. It was nothing short of a disaster because I did not train at all. I was in graduate school at the time and when I signed up for the race I had the best intentions to train, but life and experiments got in the way. I ran the race since I wanted to get the most out of my registration fees, but it was terrible decision. I finished the race in 3 hrs and 10 minutes and in severe pain.

I took a seat (literally) for 5 years and ran the race again in 2013 for redemption and shaved nearly an hour off my time. This race taught me the value and importance of training.
