The days after

Sunday I set a new PR for my 1/2 marathon time. This time I finished in 2:27. Approximately 26 minutes faster than my time in the Dirty Half last year. I am happy with that time, although I really had hoped to come in closer to 2:15. Next year!

I don't have any good pictures at the moment. I'm hoping to gather some from the friends who have some great shots. The one's I currently have include closed eyes or blurry scenes. No worries, pictures will come later on. I have the pictures in my mind and that is fine.

I also have the hardware. Really that is what I was in it for this time anyway. I should include a photo of that. I'll add one in later.

My bigger issue is what to do with myself now. I have spent the past 13 weeks thinking, planning and training for this event. Now that the event is done, I don't know what to do with myself. Unfortunately I've been filling my time with food. Yikes, that can't be a good idea!

I'm hoping over the next few days as my body and mind finish the week long recovery process that I'll come through the other side recharged and refreshed.

Oh, and with a new obsession logged on the calendar.


  1. Oh, and with a new obsession logged on the calendar.

    By "new obsession" you mean of course this event right? :)

  2. Well, I thought about that event, but I'm worried you three will really slow me down. I've got a reputation as a rabbit you know.

  3. P.S. You want a 4th member of Barrels to Keg, I want my Prefontaine tickets. You decide dude. It's all up to you.
