I Was Cold and It Sucked

I did finish the half marathon.  Out of the five times I've done this race, this was my third fastest.  One time I dropped out, so I was obviously faster than that time.  Another time I did it without really training at all, so I was faster than that time.

Anyway, two times I ran the race in 1:43, and this time I ran it in 1:44.  To tell the truth, I'm pretty annoyed that I was that close to running it again in 1:43, or maybe I actually wanted to run it in 1:42.  The main problem was that the cold air was hard for me to breathe; whereas, my neck warmer pulled over my mouth also made it hard for me to breathe. 

Oh well.  I still did it, and now I'm going to train for the next thing, which will be a 10-miler on March 9th.  I'm going to try to get my best 10-mile time, which will be 1:17 or faster.  I'm optimistic, as I ran 1:18 for the 10 mile during today's race.

Rats. Sorry you're bummed. I think for the weather, you did pretty awesome. It was a rotten day to run. Onward to the 10 mile!

You should be shouting from the rooftops regarding your greatness.
