Callie bought me an entry into this Half Marathon for Christmas. We flew out a couple of day ago to visit her, her husband and a few other friends. 

Callie invited another friend Lu Vo to run with us and help pace her to a 1:37:30 half marathon PR. She has not seemed to master the half marathon even though she easlily qualified for Boston this year. We were all excited to make this happen for her but unfortunatly it wasn't the day. The weather was pretty good at about 55 degrees, overcast with a light breeze. We started out with  a very tight crowd and back further than we probably should have been and it kept us slowed down for the first mile or so. But after that, things opened up and we were able to run the paces as we wanted. All seemed to going well until about mile 7 where Callie started to struggle with her HR spiking and breathing labor. We pushed another half mile or so, talking about how she was feeling, and decided to scrap the PR idea and try and salvage the run. As she was just continally getting slower and slower I suggested a walk 10-15 seconds and then run at goal pace for as far as was comfortable and then repeat this walk run pattern until the end or until she felt better. I believe this kept her in the race and actually salvaged a total bonk as she started to feel much better on the last 2 miles. All in all it was a fun day. Callie was only about 15 seconds longer than her PR and we were just happy to run another race together....what a blessing!!!

Still in California until Wednesday. I ran by myself today (actually with Kida, the dog) as Callie had a meeting to go to. Feeling fine after the race yesterday. Ran an easy progressive run with a few easy marathon pace miles.
