Highlights of your race – What did you do well and enjoy about your race in particular?

Ran a 122:13 Half on a super hot and windy morning. Was happy with my time for the running conditions. After the finish I ran back to pace another doing the full. She ran a 3:41:41-got a shiny new PR-and qualified for Boston by over 20 minutes!! Well done Dawn Claus!! Thanks TeamRunRun and coach Andrea! Running is so much fun!!
