13.1!

Believe it or not, the half marathon went much better than expected. When we were lined up at the start, the announcer said it was 87% humidity — yikes. There were 8,000 other runners (supposedly), which is always motivating, and Ellen and I were in much better shape by mile 10 at this race than the last half marathon we ran (last April) — we even managed to finish five minutes faster! I knew I was more mentally prepared for this race (if much less physically prepared), but it made for what was actually a fun race!

  1. Good work. Believe it or not (since you’ve met me) I used to be a cross country runner in high school. Part of me misses it but I’ve never really liked to exercise.

  2. Congrats!
