    Mrs. P survives another half-marathon.

    And this one was a woozy.

    I also finished dead last. However, I was like that person at Nationals who was just happy to be there. I guess next year, I can aspire to greater things.

    Just wanted to share my joy with my GS family.

    Thanks guys! I love the support.

    For anyone who was curious, I finished the race in 3:07, which is by far the worse time for me and far off my current PR of 2:31 and some change. However, you saw the elevation, my only aspiration for this particular race was to finish. I had trained a lot of hills, but that incline was like the equivalent of doing my toughest hill workout multiple times!

    However, this was what greeted me when I got to the top, which is why people do this race (and why I will probably do it again): http://photos-b.ak.instagram.com/hph...15324722_n.jpg

    That's amazing! Congratulations!

    The most I ever run is when my dog drags me around my block...and even then I get winded

    I like swimming too! Though it's more for fun, not really doing laps.
