Race Report:

Great race, my previous 13.1 was 12 months ago on Thanksgiving day. It took 2:16 to finish. So I am very pleased with my new time this year. My goal was to be under 1:49 and I achieved my goal. Yeah

BTW, word to the wise, not a good idea to do a Duathlon the week before a half marathon. Around mile 9, I really started to feel the recent wear and tear. From the waist up I felt great throughout. But after mile 9 my legs would not respond to the acceleration button.

My leg are still very sore, but overall getting used to running and really starting to enjoy it as well.
