My legs are sore.  I don't even want to get out of bed because I know my calves will scream at me. 

A half marathon will do that to you.

1:53:32 was my time.  Pretty average, but I'm happy with it.  I've never run that far in my life, so I didn't know what to expect when I started the Jacksonville Bank Half Marathon.

I stayed real consistent the whole way through, and before I knew it, I was back to where I had started earlier that morning.

I still had gas at the end, which makes me think that I could've gone a bit quicker.  There's always next time, I suppose. 

For now, it's back to the bikes.  My first (unofficial) race is Jan. 21.  Here goes nothing.

a little slice of Belgium

This past weekend was Swamp Cross, Gainesville's annual cross race.  The weather was beautiful (a tad windy at times), riders suffered and a lot of beer was consumed.  Sounds like a successful cross race to me.
