Did my half marathon this morning.  My goal was to finish with a 10 min. mile pace and I finished with a 9:43 min mile pace.... Yeah Me!

My over all time was 2:07:22, I was in the top 25% for my age range (40-44) and in the top 31% for all women.  They had 6,100 racers this morning.

St. Charles IL. It is about an hour west of Chicago. If the weather is good I a hoping for a PR. :)

yeah!  I would love to hear about your race when you are done.  I would love to do races in other areas but it is just so easy to wake up and drive the 5 miles to the start line, rather than getting on a plane.  Only thing I HATE about this race is mile 5.5 to mile 6.5 there is a 420 foot climb - yuck!

Woo hoo! I have my first half marathon July 6. I've been running for years but never braved signing up for anything more than a 12K. Congratulations Jen!!

Where was your race at?  St. Charles is close for me.  Takes me about 20 minutes to get there.  Fairly flat course which is why I hope to PR.  Had a good 5k yesterday so i think I'm ready.   If you ever do want to travel the Indy Mini Marathon (early May) is a great race

I will. Thanks Jen. I've been having some strange issues lately which have affected my running. I work from home, spend countless hours at my laptop, which causes my neck to ache, and this week I have had a bug of some sort and in addition, my lower extremeties have been aching. I seriously don't know what's been going on. But I'm still going to run my favorite 12k next Sunday and continue to train for my half marathon. I'd also like to do another sprint triathlon. I have a friend with whom I've done several, and it would be great if I could add another this summer to my resume. But the neck pain has curtailed my swimming for quite a while now : (
