I have to confess... This post isn't actually about food. (Don't hate me!) It's just to tell you all that I did it -- I walked my first half-marathon today, in the 9-Run-Run! Whoo hoo! It started off cold -- just a couple of degrees above freezing, and went on to only warm up marginally. There was wind, and a little rain, but nothing worth getting discouraged over. But I had great company, and a great time. Overall, I'd call the day a success. I'm sore, but not injured, and tired, but not exhausted. It's a good pain, I guess :)
I've got a new personal best to beat for the next race. Well, maybe not the next race -- it's tomorrow morning. But for the next half marathon, at least!
