Finished my slowest half marathon yet but in 75-80 degree heat and humidity I'm just so grateful to have a friend like Julie who can finish like an utter champ and come all the way back to meet me and run the last quarter mile a whole second time just to get me to the finish line! It was hot and sweaty and I poured a whole cup of water on my head at the end. Also I'm grateful to live in California where the coastlines are protected and relatively undeveloped. This was the one ocean view along the route! I had to stop and capture the sunrise. #running #halfmarathon #stillalivetbh – from Instagram
