I still can't believe it!
The dissapointment from the marathon earlier this month is finally fading away. I feel somewhat validated that I can still go at it faster than before.
Looking back at 11 years running this race I can't believe how fast I've come in running. When I think back that I only started running so that I could score a date with Mrs. Clot Buster... yep, as a former soccer player running just for the sake of running was only a vehicle to spend some additional time with Mrs. Clot Buster. I guess that I can thank her for giving me the chance to explore new challenges... from 5Ks, 10Ks, Half-Marathons to full out Marathons. I can't see myself stopping any time soon as I need to do what I can to try to keep up with her.
So, I improved in the 10K arena over Thanksgiving, I got a new personal best in the Half-Marathon distance back in April so all things considered I am very satisfied with my improvements. I guess that I am getting better with age. Maybe when I am 35 or 40 I may qualify for Boston...
At any rate, for now I just have to follow Junior around as he is running around grandma's house.
Thanks for Reading,
