Surf City Half

Here are the lovely photos from Surf City (I mean WET CITY) Half Marathon. My legs look tan, but they are really red from frost-bite. I look very serious in the 2nd picture. Don't you love the cold weather gear that I own. HA HA.

I hope my half pics make me look as hawt as yourself :-). Nice showing!

I really enjoyed the chirunning session Saturday. The first three hours were like "ya, RIIIGHT" and as soon as we pieced together all the excercises I was running without any effort at all. This whole "using gravity" idea is pretty swell. I'll tell you more after I get a chance to do a full run using the technique, which will hopefully be tomorrow morning as I skipped my long run yesterday for a long walk around Chi-town :-).

Wow - that looks cold. I have run cold runs but to do 13.1 cold and rainy makes it that much colder.

Good job with the race!

I ran everywhere as a child growing up but stopped when I was 15 and was diagnosed with asthma. I was afraid I would get sick if I ran. Three years later, I ran for 6 weeks at Basic Training. That was short lived. But running has always been on my mind. I picked it up back in August but that was a brief stint. I recently started running again as I have just committed myself to running a 5K portion in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon at the end of April. I am scared to death. As I run each week I want to cry because I am so afraid I won't succeed. Seeing your picture has inspired me!
