That's right, last Sunday... I beat my goal of finishing my first half marathon in under 2hr 30min. 2:23:24... that is an average of under 11 minute per mile for over 13 miles. I am very pleased with my results and can't wait to do another one. I'm already thinking that my next goal is to come in under 2hr 15min.

Other things in my world...
  1. DH had his varicocele repair surgery on Wednesday. He had more than expected veins in his testicles, his urologist (who I met for the first time after the surgery and he was very hot) said that he will be really sore, bruised and swollen for about a week. Well, let me just tell you, his testicles are outragously big and purple/black. Not pretty on my pale Englishman.
  2. On Monday, I treated myself to a deep tissue body massage to work out all the knots from running and my massage therapist left bruises on my bum and back. It was sore for a day then all my muscles felt fabulous.
  3. I have decided to start back with my personal trainer in addition to the continued running training.
  4. BIG news... I booked a trip to go to Peru with some girlfriends the first week of November. We are going to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I can't wait.

That's all for now... I need to get some sleep as I am getting up really early to do an 8 mile run.

Amazing job on the half marathon, I am NOT a runner so I think that is absolutely remarkable. I hope that your DH is recovering from his surgery and I am incredibly jealous of your plans for Peru.

WooHooo!!! Damn, I miss running so much. Ran for much of my life and now after 4 knee surgeries and a broken foot, I have to put my marathon plans away. But yay for you!!!

And Peru? You suck.

Okay, you don't suck. But I am jealous.
