...the Long Beach Half-Marathon has been run.
My quest for a sub-2-hour half-marathon time continues...
Official time: 2:01:28
Close... but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. You have no idea how much I love that expression.
Not crazy about the over-2-ness of the time, but very pleased with how I ran for the most part. And while I didn't achieve my 'stretch' goal, I did crush my other goal (2:07). Crushed.
And I survived.
A more complete race report will follow someday. Here's the medal...
I want to thank all of my bloggy and real life friends and family who provided so much support... you all are just super awesome! The tweets and texts and facebook messages and blog comments were so uplifting and reassuring!
