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).

9 miles, including 2 x 1 mile (7:15, 7:01). A little sore from Sunday, but feeling overall pretty good. Hope to drop 10-15 lbs over the next 2 months and get serious again with running. My 50th is in May.
