Country Music Half Marathon

What a memorable weekend: tornado watch, thunder storms, shelter in place, and a PR. Yes, thank you Nashville for the personal record. I scored my WORST time here! 13.1 miles at 2:48:45. DAMN! I do have to say, though, that all these things made my 11th half marathon an experience I will never forget! :-)

The US Half Marathon, The Other Half

I did something pretty cool today: I ran my 10th half marathon. Amazingly enough, this was the 10th race in six months. I completed the race in 2:22:55, a time I'm very happy with considering the hills in The Presidio and the rough weather conditions on the Golden Gate Bridge.

This one was especially awesome because I ran it in my back yard. I love San Francisco, and to be able to run across the Golden Gate Bridge was quite an experience. Every moment of this 13.1 miler reminded me of my humble beginnings in my quest to get healthy when I walked my dog everyday to the Golden Gate Bridge. I still can't believe that one year ago I thought I was having heart attack. As a result, I made healthy changes and now I am the happiest I've ever been in my life. What a difference a year makes. Life is beautiful.

Easter Roller Coaster 5k

I woke up at 7am to run the Easter Roller Coaster 5k. They call it this for a reason. I think "Hell Hill" would be more appropriate, but since it is Easter Sunday, I'll go with it. This was a tough run. I'm glad it's done.
