It's Wednesday already?

How did that happen? Oh yeah, 13 hour workdays and then a weekend full of driving (did you know that New Hampshire is FIVE hours away from New York City?).

So I missed my two year blogoversary--it was April 4, please send all gifts (monetary preferred) to my attention. Also, I haven't been able to share the great news form this weekend: my race!

To recap: my Half-marathon PR is 1:53:41 and I've been clocking times in this range for about two years. My ambitious goal was 1:50:00. However, this being New England there were lots of hills and 40 mph wind gusts.

But if the Newport Marathon was any indication, the harder the race, the better my PR. Yes folks, I didn't just make my goal of 1:50:00, I crossed the finish line in 1:48:40--that is a whole FIVE MINUTES OFF my Half-Marathon PR!!!

Full race report to follow...probably this weekend.

Whhhhooooaaaa.. Congrats on the new PR. That is freaking awesome. I do look forward to your full post-race report. You must have lots of heavy metal stuff that you listened to (your iPod).
