Palisade Half Marathon

The Palisade half marathon was a great race! It was small race and the course was amazing.
I ran a 1:49, which I was happy with since I had not run speed workouts for the month of April. My hip has also been bothering me and started hurting at mile 1 so I felt like I was mentally tough for this race. We ran along vineyards, the Colorado River and huge mesas! There was a huge hill around mile 4 that which was advertised as 195 ft but it sure seemed a lot longer than that! I started out slower on purpose and that seemed to work for me. I did start to get fatigued at mile 9 but held strong. There was some wind but nothing major.

The views

There were 14 of us from the club that either ran the 10K or the half!

Wine Tasting!


  1. Wow, looks like you had a great race with great fun! Congrats!

  2. What fun! Great race and what way to refuel! :)

  3. Woohoo, that's a great time considering all. I will have to add that race to my list, it's such pretty country over there and I've never run a race there before. Must do. Congratulations!!!

    I am doing Slacker, but probably just easy because I have the Leadville Heavy Half the weekend after and that race will probably kill me so I don't want to go into it with trashed quads from Slacker. We'll have to meet up for a post-race celebratory adult beverage, yes??? :)
