Ran the Charleston Half Marathon. Not quite in distance shape, yet happy with the results. It's been a few years since I've really felt healthy enough to go past 5k/10k distance.

10k split: 43:59

Finish (13.3 on my garmin)- 1:36:38

78th overall and 4th in my age group. 4 sub-7 miles and 10 that were sub-7:30. Fastest mile was 6:27 and slowest mile was 7:44. Hopefully I can build on this.
