Yet Another Race Update
Sunday was the Fiesta Bowl-Runner's Den half marathon in Scottsdale, and while I was 31 seconds--31 seconds!--short of my goal of breaking 1:50, I did improve my time from last year by over 8-and-a-half minutes, and it's a new PR for the distance at 1:50:31 (gun time, not chip time, too). Maybe next time I'll do better if I haven't donated blood 4 days before the race. It's a pretty fast crowd; the third fastest male in my age group finished in 1:32, and there's no way that's happening for me. If I make it to age 80, only then would I have a chance. Nice T-shirt, though.
