“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

I Did It!

Well, the cutoff time for the San Francisco First Half Marathon was three hours.

My official chip time was 2:59:36.  Wow.

Yes, I could have run harder the last couple miles and had a little more cushion in there, but my only goal was to be an official finisher.  AND - even though it was cutting it close to the 3-hr mark, it's still a new P.R. for me!

I'll do a real race report later this week, but thought I'd let y'all know that...
The full report will have lots of pics, but I wanted to share this shot from Mile 5 - at the top of one of the major hills, and just before getting on the road deck of the Golden Gate Bridge.  This could be my new all-time favorite race pic.
