I guess I never realized you where you lived. Great time! I am training for my first half that is February 2nd, 2014. The Texas Half that will be at the Irvin Convention Center.

I didn't understand what you numbers meant though.

Any and all wisdom is greatly appreciated :)

God bless,
Eric

    Great run, alot better than you expected initially. Do you wear rain gear in the rain or just normal running clothes?

    Still a good long run. 14 miles is a long distance. Good job!

    What caused the run to be 23 minutes short of the plan?

You ran for 207 minutes which is a pretty long time so that is great. I thought I was doing good today but ran for only 184 minutes - which was my plan today.

Good luck on the Houston Half Marathon coming up next weekend.

    Why was this a bad run? All the stats look good!!!
Good job on the much longer run at a good pace.

    The worst run in the season is still far, far better than sitting on the couch. Good for you!!

    Great endurance run!!! I just finished several articles by Joe Friel on exercise and aging adults. Like me! They were very interesting.

    Hope wife is okay. I fell today, too, so I feel for her. You are doing great! Good going on sticking to your plan. Great run. Great calorie burn, too. (I'm a little jealous. Oh, well.)

    Good to hear she didn't get seriously hurt. Must be nice to be compatible enough runners to run together for 11 miles!

    Well done. My group run was canceled so I did 13 miles around my neighborhood. I was totally soaked but it was nice and cool.

    Today was a great day for running. It was really cool. I guess it was a little slippery too.

    So, the critical question is:

were you able to refrain from laughing at your wife when she got mudded up?! emoticon
