WRC Half

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing. -George Bernard Shaw

That's how I feel about the Half Marathon on Saturday. Summed up in a few works?

At least I ran it...and finished.

I could have stayed in bed, I could have given up and asked someone for a ride. Instead when my body shut down and I couldn't move mile 11 I kept going and did my best to try and jog. My time isn't worth mentioning, neither is talking about the race in detail. It was really disappointing and the worst time I've had since '03. Overall, it was the best AND worst race I've ever run. My Nike+ said that I mile 3-mile 4? I ran that in 7:46... pretty much the fastest mile I've ever done. Mile 12-Mile 13? 15 minutes. Pretty much the worst mile I've ever done. I learned a lot from this race. More of it mental and emotional than physical...but as Jared said, it's good I got the worst race out of the way now.... at least this wasn't the marathon!!
