In the last couple months, I have had my worst run and my best run. In May, I ran the Cleveland Half-Marathon, finishing in 2:18. My goal was to finish in under 2 hours. Heat, hills, and a horrendous stomach virus got the best of me. Needless to say, I was pretty bummed. Any runner understands, though, that the only productive way to deal with a poor run is to get back up and try again. That said, I will be running the Columbus Half-Marathon in October. Sub-2 hour, hear I come! (Also, a big congrats to my wife, Dona, for completing her first half-marathon! Woo-Hoo! And major props to my sister, Kara! She ran the Cleveland Half-Marathon in 2:04!)
This past weekend, I ran in one of our local community runs, the Dean DePiero 5K. My goal was to beat my previous best time of 24:38. I ended up shattering that goal and finished in 23:05. I was rather shocked! I even got 3rd place for my age bracket (30-34)!
