Seattle Half-Marathon 2008

Seeing Doug's post about running the Seattle half-marathon reminded me that I should mention that I also ran the half-marathon this year. Not nearly as good a time as my Vancouver half-marathon. I didn't train as hard, got sick 2 weeks before the race, and don't think I ate enough the day before. I managed ~1:50, despite having to walk a bit, for fear of passing out. Next year, I'll train for those damn hills better, and try and find a better pace person... Running the first 1/2 of the race at a 7:30 pace was not a good idea. Felt great at the time, but not sustainable.

Running 13 miles is an excellent excuse for some pints of Porter and a proper hamburger, and thus so did I indulge myself.
