I believe!

Thanks for all the great advice and encouragement, everyone!!

I ran a 2:19:2x half marathon this morning, good enough for a plaque for 3rd female 40-49 in a very, very small field.

That's a 7-minute PR for me!!

My half marathon time came down a total of 17 minutes in 2007 (so far) in my series of five half marathons in seven weeks. That's five out of five DONE under 2:30, each and every one!!!

Yes, I did take along the Garmin, and it actually helped my pacing enormously because the entire race after Mile 4 there was no one in sight in front of me.

Bath now, long report with photos some time later.

That is awesome. I guess that whole 'running more makes you faster' thing is true.

You know what this means? I means I will have to work hard so that I can beat your PR - gulp!

Thanks, everyone! Yeah, I'd be happy with that time any day, but a plaque was fun to get on a day that I worked hard, too!!
