This morning I ran my 5th half marathon... (4th road) and I have never broken 2 hours in a road half marathon! I've gotten 2:11, 2:03, and 2:02! Today I ran 1:59:38! I had 22 whole seconds to spare!!!

It did kinda help to see my XWH and MOW at the startline of the race... so I played the game "How much space can I put between you two pieces of crap and myself!" BOO-YAH!! EAT MY DUST LOSERS!!!

I'm so stoked!!! And, the race had over 600 feet of elevation not flat! ::doin the happy booty dance::

Color me impressed! Congratulations. I don't think I could run a half marathon if someone was chasing me with a meat cleaver. Good for you!

Any chance you are running the Baltimore 1/2 next month?

Amazing! Totally awesome!

hehe..I just checked XWH and MOW's time and they got 3 hours and 9 minutes... I had finished.... changed clothes...taken lots of silly pics....eaten a bagel...and was on my way home by the time they crossed the finishline....

Glad I didn't have to see them to spoil a perfect PR!

Congrats! I was really pissed that I ran my last half marathon at 2:00:11. It was a hot day in Nashville, and lots of people stopped in front of me. Previously, I had done a 1:53.

Was thinking of you over the weekend. I ran in a color run with over 400 people. I took off fast and led the race for the first kilometer before getting nailed by the paint! Ended up finishing 5th overall. Field wasn't that good.

That's awesome!

I had to go google to find the time for the half I ran waaaay back in 2007 (the only one I've done) and . . . well, let's just say you whipped my ass. My YOUNG 26-year-old former ass, at that! (ETA - but my young former ass did whip your XH haha!)

Congratulations on your PR!

WOW...I couldn't run that time if you set my ass on fire at the startline!

I'm sure you did WAYYYYYY better than my ex-husband!
