Ran into my friend (no pun intended!) Andrea from the trail races back in January. Great to see her! Her time was around 1:53! Congratulations Andrea. We'll be doing a trail run together in April. Can't wait! Here I am in my pink Moeben sleeves - got lots of complements. They are fantastic for days like today. You can find them at http://www.zombierunner.com/.
I met John Bingham, aka 'The Penguin'! He is the Race Director for this race and a well known author and motivator on running. He has helped thousands of people get going by his quote "The miracle isn't that I finished; the miracle is that I had the courage to start." I was able to get my picture taken with him; unfortunately, my camera was on 'movie mode' so I'll have to see what I can do with it.
I'll post the pictures from the race that the photography company takes when they are ready (action shots!)I'm glad the weather held out for the race this morning - this afternoon, it hailed so much in Tucson that it looked like it was snowing. The mountains surrounding Tucson were completely snowcapped and gorgeous! Here is our front yard:
Congratulations to all the Half Marathon finishers, especially my friends Lisa, Andrea, Mark M., Dan, and Mark C. I also wanted to congratulate Marnee, who I have yet to meet! Great job Marnee - I found you in the results! You really picked up the pace the second half like I did. Blue Pants Racing was out doing the pacing, and they did a great job!
