Brazen's Bay Breeze Half Marathon Feb. 14, 2015 - 1:47:21 08:11.7 Min/M. Nearly the same time as my best ever! But this was a flat course unlike the San Dieguito race. It may have made up for it by partly being on gravel, which definitely made i... Read more

I'm not much of a blogger. In fact this is my very first blog, but I wanted to share my first half marathon experience, which turned out to be a very rewarding experience. Although I used to have a love/hate relationship with running (I ... Read more
