Another half-marathon for the books

I started long-distance running about 3 years ago purely out of stubbornness. I was sick of watching my friends push themselves in these races and always watching from the sidelines, so I decided to train for the New Bedford Half-Marathon with a bunch of friends despite the fact that I am the opposite of a natural athlete (an unnatural athlete? maybe).

Today I completed the Hartford Half-Marathon for the third time, with a time 25 minutes faster than my time in March of 2006. I’m still slow, and running is still hard, but I am walking (limping) proof that you can do most things if you set your mind to it.
