Can't Complain

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.

I think you should wear your medal everywhere... you earned it! Someday I might be as fast as you are. Maybe. Someday. Or not. I'm so proud of you!

Dude. That's amazing. Well done! I would have my medal welded onto the front of my car if I were you. Or maybe surgically attached to your forehead. That is an incredible time!

Wahoo! Great job Amy! I can't wait for your next marathon! I am slowly recovering from a torn ligament and oh boy am I slow. Today's 6 miles took ... well... over an hour. Glad you have a great running group there although I'm sure you miss Sarah's unique conversation starters.
