Christine and I ran our first half marathon on Sunday, starting from my actual work office in downtown Alexandria. We were so lucky to have the beautiful weather – usually on Memorial Day weekend, it is sweltering. We are crazy people. My kind of goal was to run at faster than 10 minute pace, but Christine and I blew by that, I did it at 9:41 pace and Christine did it in in a crazy 9:29 pace. A little more than 2 hours of running. So proud of ourselves, we placed in the top third of our age group. I could not have done it without my running partner meeting up everyday at 5:45 in the morning.
