I feel good about that race.

May 3, 2014

Perfect morning to run 13.1 miles.  Brooke even woke up early to come out and cheer me on.

Finished in 1:24:43 and felt pretty strong.  The half is definitely my favorite distance and the 7 a.m. start time is definitely my favorite start time.

I’ve got a container of chocolate covered cinnamon bears and a new episode of The Mindy Project to attend to while Brooke is napping:)  Have an amazing rest of your Saturday and I will see you soon!

Daniel Johnston May 3, 2014 at 2:14 pm

Congrats on an awesome race! I ran it, too; it was my first half ever! I finished in 1:35:30, which I was pretty happy about.

That was so funny how they dragged out the awards ceremony. They called your name for second in your age group, and then you weren’t there. I guess it doesn’t mean anything to an accomplished runner like you!

My friend who didn’t train at all got 1:45. Pure craziness.

I need to try chocolate covered cinnamon bears.. I have never seen them or hear anyone else talk about them.. the idea is so confusing to me I don’t get what they would taste like
