Half marathon

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).

Great job! The only time you'll catch me running is if something is chasing me. Then you would also run and I would be the slower victim, meaning I'd be overrun and eaten alive. Very, very sad.

Well, at least you're honest! :)
