Running Update

Well, the official results are online for the Race for the Cure, and there were only 7,637 finishers, far fewer than I had been told on race day. I was 517th, with a time of 26 minutes and 23 seconds. I was 23rd out of 222 in my gender/age group.

I ran today, to/from my front door, about 3.1 miles, based on a path I traced with Google Earth. It was 88 degrees, 18% humidity, and rolling hills. I couldn't even run a full 2 miles without stopping to walk this time. It took me 31 minutes & 31 seconds, about a pint of sweat, no known blood loss, and my weak link was breathing (again). For my next race, I may downgrade from a run/walk to a run/walk/stagger.
