Last Wednesday morning I raced a half marathon just because I could. There was no official race event. No official timing system. Just me and my gps watch. I raced against my previous times and although I didn’t top them all, I managed to snag a third place beating all but two.
I turned 30 in April. This was not a big deal to me, but it’s nice to know I am getting stronger and faster “with age.” I am so much stronger now than I was 10 years ago, and it’s nice to know my strongest years are yet to come.
You don’t see too many 18-year-olds winning marathons.
What are some of your best race times, of any distance?
My best half marathon time is 1:47:05. Can any of you dog runners beat me? (I bet you can).
