Halloween Run

I'm still paying the price, but I did it. I ran the Provo Halloween half marathon from the Timpanogos trailhead at Aspen Grove, down the Provo river 2000 feet into Provo. My goal was 2 hours, but, with all the downhill, it went faster than expected and I completed the race in 1:45:47, 8:04/mile and good enough for 4th place in my age division and one second behind the third place finisher. Over 700 runners participated, but I could only guess how many were in my age division.

I would be elated if I could come close to this time at the Logan run in Queen Creek on January 30. I'm sure that it will be a lot harder.

I didn't even run this morning. I'm still very sore. Hopefully tomorrow.
