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 too......so not flat! ::doin the happy booty dance::

Congratulations, Shelly!

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!

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!

ETA - but my young former ass did whip your XH haha!)

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