On Sunday I ran the Rock & Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon. A gorgeous, perfect-for-running morning like this:
ended with this:
Quite honestly, there were times along the course that all that kept me going was thinking of the free beer at the end. Well, free after you consider the miles run and the registration fee. Anyway, I’ve had Mich Ultra before, but it never EVER tasted so good as it did after 13.1 miles of running. I highly recommend it to anyone (who’s over 21 and not driving afterward).
Alas, my finishing time sucked, so I’m watching more closely the things I eat, and exercising more, because I have another half marathon in October. Maybe next year or 2015, I’ll try for the Philadelphia Marathon. Or maybe I’ll wait ’til 2017, when I turn 50. 🙂
