Entered a 1/2 marathon. Wasn't fully prepared, yet hit the starting line feeling healthy. Garmin wouldn't start, so simply ran by feel. Absolutely no clocks on the course, so had no idea what my finishing time would be. My goal was 1:40, so a 1:39:17 felt great! I hope this will be a building block towards better training and faster times. I'm up to running 35/per week (a long ways from the 70 mi/weeks I used to run).
