Goofy Start to 2007

What a way to start 2007!

I successfully completed a 1/2 marathon race on Saturday and a full marathon the VERY next day!

The humid weather made my 2 hour half- marathon more difficult than I expected, but I still made it. It was hot for a guy that had trained the past 3 months in cold weather.

On Sunday we had the humid weather plus the sun to deal with. Marathon took me just over 4 1/2 hours to complete. 40 minutes slower than my Oct marathon. Wow, I was hot out there, but I ran a smart healthy marathon.

I was slower than I had planned, but had a great time accomplishing this. I'll be back to run a faster marathon somewhere this year!
