The two things learned this run:
1. screw the cap on your water bottle tight. I had some water at 5 miles, and as I ran off, I realized it wasn't a bunch of sweat pouring down my leg...it was the rest of my water being sloshed out of the bottle with the loose cap. Ugh. I was really wanting that water at mile 9.
2. around mile 11, it hit me that I could really do this half. I got a little choked up (I'm such a sap), then was hit with another realization - I can't breathe and run when I'm choked up. No getting choked up race day.
