Half Marathon in the can!

Half Marathon!

Hi everybody!  Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted but between work getting crazy and training hard for this race the blog kinda took a back seat.  Well, after 3 months of training the race was this past Sunday and it was A LOT of fun.  I ran the San Antonio Rock & Roll Half Marathon.  I made a vlog of it here:

I apologize, the first 2.5 minutes of the video are in my car at 5am and I didn’t realize it was completely dark.  I finished in 2:11 which is exactly 10 minute miles.  I highly recommend getting the No Meat Athlete Half-Marathon Roadmap*.  I would not have been able to train for this race, do so well, and avoid injury without it.

Now what?

Well, the half marathon is done.  What’s next?  Am I going to do another one?  Train for a full marathon?  I have several ideas I’m toying around with, fitness-wise and only about half of them involve running.  Expect to see more in the coming weeks on that.

*Please note this while this is not an affiliate link I am a contributor at No Meat Athlete so I do have direct interest in the success of No Meat Athlete.  But seriously, I originally bought it back when I was just a fan and it has helped tremendously.
