Rolling the Hills with Some Bloggies

Hey ya'll...

I just came off of the Austin (Half) Marathon course and need to hit the shower. No... really... I NEED to hit the shower, believe me.

Anywho... before I gets all dolled up let me tell ya about the morning. The highlight of the race was by far meeting up with Floater at the expo, TriGreyhound, Tri To Be Funny and her hubby, and Kathleen in the finishing chute.

Following the advice of my coaching buddy, Gerald, I ran this race as a training day and kept the effort moderate. The first 15k felt easy as I stuck with the 3 hour, 50 minute full marathon pace group until the half marathon course took its turn for the finish. After that I continued to keep my effort moderate with a couple of surges to keep things fun.

Despite the course dishing out hill after hill after hill it didn't keep me from doing this...

... I freakin' PR'd the thing! That's a Peeee Arrrrrhhh, my peeps!

Finishing time = 1:54:34

Fun quotient= 110%

Man I love this sport!

Stay tuned...

CONGRATS on the PR!!!!!

I'm sorry your video didn't make the Evotri top-10. I thought for sure you'd be there. Perhaps it was just because the length was over 3 minutes. Whatever, good luck if you go for the 2 other slots.
