|My running stuff ready to go Sunday morning|
Well, it’s over. After twelve weeks of work directed towards this race, it came and went in just under and hour and a half. I could give you a blow by blow of how the race went, but I doubt you’d want to read it, and I can remember too much about it anyway. I vaguely remember something about going out in 6:15-6:20 per mile pace for the first few mile as planned.

For the past couple years, I been training pretty seriously for a spring half-marathon and then a fall half-marathon and I’m ready for a break. I’ll still be running, but I’m looking forward to running a few shorter races rather than one big one.
