Sherman Avenue felt long, but I welcomed the flat course. I was wearing a short sleeve technical top under my long sleeve and my core felt warm. I wished I had just worn the long sleeve at this point, but also knew that my body would cool down later and that I would need the extra layer. At this point I tossed my gloves to my mom and knew that my husband was behind me somewhere. I was feeling great along this long stretch and was going with it.
I crossed the half marathon (13.1 miles) at 1:58:51, which was actually pretty consistent with my recent half marathon finishing times.
A car was stopped in the road with a police officer chatting with the driver. This driver was frustrated that he could not get through. Yet he was stopped in the middle of the road - and the course. I ran in front of the car and the car started moving forward. The police officer slammed on the hood of the car and yelled at the man as I ran past.
