WOOHOO! I got a half marathon PR!
Yesterday (Apr 28, 2012) I ran the Kentucky Derby Half Marathon for a new personal best. I was able to go 13.1 mules in 2 hours 17 minutes and 3 secs. I know it's not a earth shattering time or anything, but this hefty geek likes it.
This time also has a few other things going for it. Other than being a new personal best, I managed to shave 10 minutes of my time from last year. I also beat my race walking wife (who WALKED in fantastic form at 2:23:00). AND every mile but ONE was run in less than 11 minutes... something I've never done for distance before.
Oh, and the cheeseburger with a Goose Island Mild Winter beer afterward was fan-fracking-tastic.
