Eugene Half Marathon 2011
Sunday May 1st I ran the Eugene half marathon for the first time. I've done a couple others in the past but this is the first one that I actually trained for and ran the whole thing. I was really nervous because I had been having problems with my ankle and I was worried that the march of Dimes 10K the day before would make it flare back up. In the end I was worried about the wrong thing because my ankle did great but my left knee does not feel so good. I did better than I could have ever imagined. I did the 13.1 miles in 1 hour 54 minutes and ran 8.3 minute miles! This is my best time yet which might account for why I'm so sore.
