Brad's Half Marathon





Well, I finaly did it. I ran my first half marathon last Sunday in Huntington Beach. Thats 13.1 miles. I finished in two hours eleven minutes, a ten-minute mile pace. It was quite the experience and I couldn't believe how far the .1 mile was at the end. There were over 10,000 runners for this race. In case your wondering... no,I did not win. But I feel real good now that my legs have stopped cramping. Kris and the kids had a good laugh as I tried to walk around the house afterwards. I am now looking forward to my first full marathon (26.2 miles) on May 3rd. Wish me luck!!!!!!!!
