Huntsville Half Marathon
I got up early this morning, loaded up boxes of trophies, the race clock and inflatable arch and drove to the campus for the Huntsville Half & Quarter Marathon & 5K. I set up the clock and arch and ran the half marathon. The weather was perfect, temperature in the 50's and 60's and dry. I finished in 2:58:52, about a minute faster than last year. I was the only one in the 70 & Over age group, so I won 1st in my age group. The ankle I sprained a couple weeks ago really hurt. It's funny, it did not bother me in the marathon last Sunday. I only have a 5K next weekend, so maybe it will be okay before I start running long the following weekend.
