Gold medals

We did it — in 40 degree mist and over a whole lot of unexpected hills — finishing the Great Bay Half Marathon up in Newmarket, NH. Emily, of course, made a friend in the first 100 yards and took off ahead of the rest of us, chatting up a police officer from her town (not a bad move, actually…). I hadn’t expected to run with Ellen and Nell the whole way — I thought I’d chat with them until it got tough for me, then would put on my iPod and zone out. But we stuck together the whole way, keeping a 10 minute/mile pace and managing not to walk either (I also thought I’d have to walk for a minute every two miles or so). After a few beers and some Mexican food post-race, I slept long and hard — and feel pretty good today. Onward to May 25 — we’ll attempt another one on the Sunday of graduation weekend to keep us honest!

  3. So impressive! If I had know you would get medals, maybe I would have made the switch from elliptical to treadmill and trained for the half-marathon!
