Against all odds, and oh my word were there ever some odds, I took my age group and set a new personal record in the half marathon today--1:45.38. An 8:04 pace. That's down from 1:47.something back in 2007. I'll get a full race report out tonight or tomorrow, and be prepared for it to contain way too much information (if you know what I mean).
Here's picture with some friends from my local running club:
Left to right we have Damien (who also set a PR and took his age group), Anna (paced a friend today), Seth (sat this one out to pace Damien), Me, Jala (that girl ran 1:40 and change and also took her age group), and Darcy, the 5k superstar!
Now you'll have to excuse me while I wear my medal to the grocery store.
