I never ran at all until 2010. I was overweight and just wanted to get healthy. Running was what helped me through that experience and it just became a habit after a couple of years running on and off.

This was a race day, but I'm a bit unhappy with my performance so I won't say much.  At about the 8 mile mark I knew I wasn't catching the leader who finished in 1:13 and by mile 10 I shut it down pretty hard.  Finished in 1:16:51 after rolling through the halfway mark at 35:58 for an epically abysmal bad second half of 40:53.  Woops.

5:28, 5:32, 5:30, 5:34, 5:30, 5:36, 5:36, 5:39, cliff, cliff, cliff, splat, splat, Finish.

Hey, just enjoy the consolation of kicking everybody's trash in that 5k.
