running the un-half marathon

I went out for what was going to be a brief run this morning but the weather was so gorgeous and the beach was calling to me.  So, I headed into the park and found myself surround by 1/2 marathoners.  The Kaiser Permanente SF half- marathon took place this morning and upon reaching the beach, I stopped to cheer on some runners and enjoy the energy.  I was sad to not be doing the race but then reminded myself that the half marathon is not actually a distance I like anyway.  I decided to celebrate the fact that the day was sunny and I was enjoying a morning run!

The workout:

4 miles on trails, a few walk breaks, HR zone 3-4
