Had a fun run at the Everyone Runs Half Marathon in Tucson this morning. I ran a flat 1:30:00 as a bandit. I felt pretty good and fast today. I didn't expect to go this fast but I got to 10 miles and felt like I could bust 1:30:00, but when it was all said and done I couldn't get the final mile done any faster. Here are my splits:
I found this incredible cartoon at a friends blog and had to repost it (thanks Brownie)
Another big milestone I crossed today was going further today then I did all last year. I'm at 2733 right now. I'm chasing 3000 miles by year end and think I'm on track, as long as I don't suffer any injuries. It has been a great year and I feel like I will take a step back as I learn my new job up in Chicago and get used to running in a new place. I think I will have a fair amount of travel with my new job, plus I just don't know how life in such cold weather will be? Maybe I am spoiled by the great weather here in Arizona and I will not be so motivated in Chicago. Anyway, the past two years have been a running dream and I am really glad that I got the 100 mile benchmark under my belt.
