2011 Half Marathon Result

I ran in the Ogden 1/2 marathon a few weeks ago. It was lots of fun, but my time was a bit weak when compared to my first 1/2 marathon time. I'm excited to sign up for the next one, so I can try and do better. Half marathons are a good time if you're a runner...They don't require all that much extra training & like my cousin Johnny pointed out the other night--a marathon is the only event in sports that participates can choose to go only half way and still get praise & accolades from friends. Ha! I'm just happy that I came in under 2 hours...barely under 2. Race results. Here are a couple pics I stole from Leesh.

Matt and Aleesha after both of their races were done! I was so proud of both of them, especially Leesh since this was her first big race. She did great.

running for 2 hours sounds like pure torture to me, but I am proud of you and glad you had fun!! Can't wait to see you, by the way!!

You killed it! I'm proud if I run under a 9 minute mile pace for 4 or 5 miles.
