Last Minute

Since I am signed up to do a marathon in February I have been doing some training. This weekend I was scheduled to do 8 miles. Instead I decided at the last minute to do the Houston Half Marathon and signed up for it on Saturday afternoon.

Well, I did it! Can you believe it?! I can't! And my legs really wish I hadn't, but I just keep telling them "c'est la vie!!"

More details later - but the end result was 2:40:10.8. I can live with that! Actually, considering my training up to this point - I am pretty pleased with that!

Congrats! I was thinking about all of you out there today. One of the few things I miss about where I used to live was that I got to see all the big races when out doing my own runs.

Are you doing the 25K? I'm debating if I want to go to the trouble.
