Mexico City 21K - 1st of 4 halves this Year

Mexico City, May 6, 2018. There is not a better place to begin the season. It was the beginning of a season I really wasn't sure what would be about. I definitely knew what I needed to do to make it through!

I learned that it is common practice using a race to train for another race and since I started training with Adidas Runners NYC I have been running 9+ miles every Saturday that is why when my friend GG, who actually is the one who got me into this running fever all together, told me about the possibility of getting us into Mexico City half marathon I pushed for it. training began and we got ready!
Mexico is an incredible country I love the food, I love the music, and people are great. Funny thing, it seems in Mexico City they are not used to see many black people roaming around, and definitely not running a half marathon filled with mostly locals. It was incredible.

The only challenge was the altitud so getting started was somewhat hard, but I would say the second half was just they way it should be. the weather wasn't the best any way, it was a bit hot and humid, the rain made it feel a bit better on the second half.

Here I didn't go with any Personal Record in mind, but just keeping it below 2 hours, I finished in 1:57:27 MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
