I finished a half marathon! My foot was still bothering me and I had almost decided to skip running any halfs this fall. But with 60-70F weather, I decided to try it. I felt pretty good. No real pain in my foot. I ran about 8 miles with a friend from work, Omar Olivares. Those 8 miles went fast as we solved most of our company's problems. I just wish I could remember the solutions we came up with. Seriously, it was a bonus to to have a great conversation, and not only about work. At 8 miles I took a 10-12 minute restroom stop (waiting in line, etc.) Below are my official times. If you subtract 10 min, my pace was 10:50. Not bad for not being really trained for it, and I was just running and enjoying the day.
overall place 273 M 55-59 age group place 8 2:32:47 11:40/M
My Garmin stopped working after 4 min. But I have a finisher's medal to prove I did it.
