: I ran the Baltimore Running Festival Half Marathon. I ran this at a relaxed pace (1:55:30 time; 8:49 pace). I had no business racing this two weeks out from my marathon, so I kept it easy and enjoyed by myself, which was really easy because of the great race atmosphere. I loved the crowds and all the live bands. Unofficial aid is actually encouraged at this race and a number of people go all out! I saw beer stands, baskets of candy, baskets of donut holes, tons of water and Gatorade stands, and there was probably stuff I missed. Not focusing on time reminded me why I love racing so much.
