What a great race today. I thought I would set a PR bit I expected to be in the 1:36 range. I was starting to struggle a bit at mile 10 but the gel I took finally kicked in and I ran the last 5k in 22:02. Had a great time with some friends from dailymile.com last night. Had a good visit with high school friend Arik Heinrich after the race while he was waiting for his wife Heather to finish her race. It was great seeing so many people I knew. Even saw another high school friend at the start, Bill Anderson.

    Thank you everyone for your kinds words. It was a great race. I'm still thinking about it and will for some time. It was my fastest, but not the hardest half I have run, if that makes sense. I'm surprised how good my legs feel today. But I have been working hard the last year to improve my form and it has helped a lot.
