Woo hoo!! 1.59.45 - Go tell your mama!

I did it!! I busted two hours in a half for the very first time. It was tough as hell and I almost threw up after my mega-sprint at the finish, but I DID IT!! My official time is 1.59.45. My watch time was slightly less but I was too busy taking pictures of the start to start my watch right away! LOL! Yee haw!! It was fun and we've been kicking it in this unbelievably comfortable bed for a while watching TV. Now it's time to go out and party! I'll post a proper race report with pics later. Brent has some pics he sent along the way over on his blog. Have a great Sat! And Happy B-day to 'the other "Brent" '.

Good for you Rachel. Kinda gets you all misty about how well we're going to do in Miami, right?

A tidbit from a veteran marathoner I saw after my half marathon yesterday: he says to double your half M time and add 10 minutes to project your marathon time.
