Ron- congrats on the mini goal! That's always a confidence booster.
Pam-sorry to hear about the bonk, but the olympic lifting sounds very impressive!
As for me, I ran another 1/2 this past Sunday and didn't do so well...It was a very hilly course with the last 3 miles were all up hill
I really hate uphill finishes.
I was feeling tapped out by mile 8 and my pace was dropping fast, I also kept fighting the voices in head telling me to stop but I didn't listen and continued on.
All in all it was a good run, beautiful weather and scenery and I learned a lesson to add hills to my training... my final time was 2:13:06.
