Halloween Half Marathon

Ali, Jennifer and I ran the most fun half marathon around Halloween. 
It was meant to be a normal road race around the Trinity river in Ft Worth but, it had rained alot and with construction, they had to re-route the race the day before race day. 
 It ended up being about a 9 mile road race, then a 3 mile trail run and a mile to finish. 
I ended up LOVING this format.
 Just when I was about to get tired, the trail run helped keep my mind off it and distracted me. 
I was so scared for my mile to finish after how hard my last mile was on the Mammoth run but, it ended up being great! 
And the trail run was a BREEZE compared to Mammoth so that was nice too. 
 Jennifer had some fun shirts made for us and it ended up being the most fun race.
