It was so great to see Karen and Michelle. The hardest part about moving is being far away from the friends you have have made. We spent two days exploring near the Santa Fe plaza, hitting up breweries and wine tastings and eating delicious food. On Saturday we were able to hit up the farmer's market which was in walking distance of our bnb.
On Saturday we also drove out to the Buffalo Thunder Casino to get our race numbers. The expo was small and besides numbers and t-shirts there was not much going on. I spent the day telling myself I would be fine and that the race was downhill, over and over and over again. I was hopeful that positive talk would make up for my lack of training. The longest run I had done in preparation was an 8 miler weeks ago.
Karen and I powered through to about a 2:40 finish. I really enjoyed running with her. I think races are about 110% more fun to run with friends. I would recommend this half. It would be a great course to PR on, training would also help with that whole PR thing. Plus Santa Fe is a nice city to visit. Overall it was a great weekend and the best part was hanging with Karen and Michelle. Running friends are the best. I can't wait till we come up with our next adventure!
