1/2 marathon

Well, I haven't talked much about training for this year's race. Probably because I hadn't been training as much as I should. Anywhoooo...I ended up hurting my foot after my 10 miler 3 weeks before the race. I have no idea what I did and none of the medical people I talked to about it had any idea either, so I just rested. Basically that meant that when the day of the race rolled around I hadn't done any physical activity for 3 weeks. Not smart. Plus race day was the hottest of the year. Not a good combo. I did finish...15 minutes slower than last year. And I didn't throw up, which is a step up from last year. Lots of people couldn't finish due to the heat and a 25 year old guy actually died after crossing the finish line because of a "cardiac event". So needless to say, I'm just glad I finished. Too bad I'm going to have to run the stupid thing again so I can run it under 2:30. That's my goal. As soon as I do that, I'm done...or so I say now.
