Over the last year or so I decided I needed to get fitter. Partly because, you know, you just are meant to do that kind of thing. Also, I have to admit, because one of my residents challenged me to run the Corvallis Half-Marathon with her. And I am nothing if not competitive.
So, here it is:
1 hr 59 minutes 19 seconds chip time (the extra 10 seconds is me pausing my watch). I was aiming for less than 2 hours, so I suppose I should be happy. Bonked a bit in the last few miles as I, regrettably, did not refuel during the race. Next time...
And the irony; my resident was in a minor car accident a couple of weeks prior, and she was not allowed to run. So I didn't get the chance to beat her.
