Yesterday, I ran the Capitola Half Marathon! I finished in 1:58:41. just 4 seconds shy of my current half marathon PR. My #1 goal this year was to break 2 hours in a half marathon, and I’ve done it twice in a row now! I didn’t go into this race with any strict time goal, so I couldn’t be happier with my performance. The race was an out-and-back course from Santa Cruz to Capitola and back, and I was able to spend a little time in both of these beautiful coastal cities.
This was my first time visiting the area, and I was only there for one night-but I definitely want to go back and explore more!
