3M half-marathon

woke up way early to stand at the starting line at Gateway. the wheelchairs got to go first.. i gotta hand it to those folks. very inspirational.

the weather was a bit cold, but not too bad. there was about 4000 people in the field. the first 5 miles was easy, then i felt like my energy got less and less, before a spurt towards the end. i need to figure out the whole nutrition thing, and pace myself. anyways, i did finish this time. and since the race was walker friendly, i didn't finish in the last 5.. and arrived about 40 mins before the course ended. it was nice to finish a race where there's actually food left. andy met me around mile 12, and gave me a ride back to my car.
