This morning, I ran the 3M Half Marathon for the third time. I’m happy to report that I’m getting faster as I age. I ran it in 1998 and finished in 1:40:00. In 2001, I finished in 1:38:30. This morning, however, I finished in 1:36:00! That’s a 7:20 min/mile pace. Here are my general results and detailed results.
The half marathon is always a lot of fun. Here are some of the things I saw along the route this morning:
- a lederhosen-clad accodianist
- a kilt-clad bagpipe player
- a juggler riding a unicycle
- a live band
- a terrified whitetail buck (with a big rack) next to Anderson high school
