Survived! AND with a PR!
Finished at 2:54:09, 13:17 pace. My 2003 Long Beach 1/2 marathon time was — get this — 3:03:57. Pacific Shoreline 2003 was 3:07:44. (I’ve done that twice but can’t find the other results.) (We won’t mention my time for the inaugural 2004 Chesebro Half.)
Almost a 10 minute PR! Okay, okay, I know it’s still dismally slow. But hey, that’s a lot of improvement in my mind.
