New Bedford Half-Marathon. Official time: 2:44:08, a new PR for me. I ran this on a whim -- only got the idea to run it on Friday, because I was going to do a 12-mile training run anyway. So I figured I could probably knock out another 1.1 miles and get a medal for it. Nik ran with me, since she's already run NBHM three other times and wasn't interested in racing it this time. She shared all the race strategy with me, telling me which hills I should walk up to conserve energy for the end of the race (it's a fairly hilly route). People on the course were fantastic, excellent crowd support, weather was ideal, had no major issues except for a lack of breath by the end, and overall I had a really wonderful time. I didn't want to race the course, because I'm still in training for New Jersey, so I kept it as a fun run -- but in this training cycle my overall speed has gotten a tad faster. Best to spend a day running w/ my wife, and very nice to get a PR out of it too.
