So glad to be out there and make it to the finish after all that's been going on. Got to meet Greg S. in person! Ran with Jinger for the first 5.5 or so and then needed to make pitstop #1. I passed a bunch of people until the mile 6 marker when I refilled my water and then had to pass them all again. Passed a bunch more then had to make pitstop #2. Then at mile 10 I refilled my bottle again and this time I had to repass all the folks I passed before. It was kinda funny :) Was at 1:29:05 a the 10 mile and then finished in 1:53:32ish so averaged sub-8:00 for the last 5k. I think I would have been really close to breaking 1:50 with all the stops, but it's fine. I said I just wanted to finish under 2 today so I did and earned my omelette date with friends and teammates after! PERFECT day for a half. Cooler out than it's been. Fast times for most out there today. I'm sure if it was hotter I would have been much closer to that 2 hours!

    Fantastic job out there! What a strong run with all you've had to deal with recently. How'd those people like being passed by a speedy pregnant woman several times over? :)

    Great job! I ran that race a few years ago. Really nice course other than the VERY cambered roads. What a morning for an early season half!

    I would have paid to see the other runners faces as you passed them not once, not twice, but three times! Awesome job!

    Really nice meeting you finally, great job today, really impressed. I'm with Sarah, those cambered roads killed me, made things seem tougher than they should have.

    My guess is those people you passed 3x began to wonder if (a) they were losing their minds or (b) they were being punked. :-) It's bad enough to get passed ONCE by a pregnant lady! Great job, my friend. So glad you got to get out there and have fun with it!

    Great race! If you're racing for two, does that mean you get to divide your official time in half? :)

    Great run.

    Maybe the people being passed 3x didn't realize that it was the same pregnant woman and wondered how many super fast pregnant women there were in the race.
