I’m just jumping straight to the point: my 11th half marathon was tougher than the 10 before it combined. I was expecting an easy, low-pressure race in the middle my marathon training cycle…boy was I wrong. A few curveballs completely out of my control happened, and this race ended up not going to plan at … More Victory Half Marathon 2019 race recap: when things don’t go to plan
