Reflecting Back on the Wahine Half Marathon
My overall placement was 497 out of 1,599 finishers and 494 out of the 1,593 female finishers. I placed 90 in my division (35-39), which had 265 finishers. My time was 2:19:15. Yes, this was my slowest half marathon to date but I am still completely happy with the results. I was running in new terrain with warmer temperatures, more humidity, and I did allow myself to pause at moments to see the beauty. This is something I have never done in a race before but this race deserved it in my mind. My enthusiasm for this race was high from the moment I heard about it and I wanted to truly cherish each moment of the run. I wasn't running to win. I was running to have fun and to be a strong woman, a diva!
I hope to see you next year at the 2nd annual Wahine Half Marathon and feel blessed to be a part of the Inaugural Run Like a Diva run in Hawai'i!
