In January three of us from the Towpath Turtles headed South for the Naples Half-Marathon.
My Sister and I planned to run it together as a conditioning tool, not for any specific time. However, less than one mile in I told her, "...you're gonna PR today." Despite being so early, I run with her enough to know her running almost as well as I do my own. It was mild, the course was beautiful and flat, and she looked STRONG with a pace as steady as a metronome. So, I encouraged her to go ahead and run her own race. Really glad she did because she finished it under 2:20 which was a HUGE PR for her. She deserved it after all the work she put in last Fall and was robbed of in the "Stomp the Grapes half-marathon" (AWFUL RACE for all of us).
I finished Naples, my 13th/25th State, in 2:25:31 gun (2:23:22 chip/Garmin).
