Welcome to my blog and website, I hope you find your visit interesting.

Look at the faces of my people:
You will find expressions of love and despair, hope and joy, sadness and desire, and all the human feelings that live in the hearts of people of all colors. Yet, the heart never knows the color of the skin.

half marathon

Thursday, 13 December 2012

Well, I did the half-marathon run. But not the official race. I was going to do the official race but the weather turned out to be right near freezing that morning, so instead I waited till the afternoon when it warmed up a bit and I went out in my own neighborhood and ran the half-marathon distance. My time was 2 hours 5 minutes and some seconds, which would coincide with about 25th or thereabouts in the official race. That's not bad for my first and only half-marathon run. At this time I have no plans on doing another, I'll just go back to running 5 miles a day. And biking to work.
