Anyway, I had originally planned on running the 5K, but a couple of weeks ago I got the crazy idea that I could run the 1/2 marathon so I switched. I talked my friend Caron into doing it with me.
Anyway, despite my lack of training, I felt really good and kept a pretty good (for me) pace up until Mile 8. Mile 8 was hard, but then I got a 2nd wind or something until Mile 12.
|Dean had to have another surgery last week...let's hope he recovers well so he can start training for Kona!|
And it gave me just enough "ooomph" to finish up. My final time was 2 hours and 35 minutes. I probably could have done it 5 minutes faster, but I had to take 2 potty breaks.
I actually kept up with my Dad and Nathan until my first bathroom break at about Mile 5.
