This past Saturday my friend from Fort Dodge and I ran the Kentucky Derby Festival Half Marathon. It was lots of fun. Both of us did much better than we were expecting and neither of us was injured. Our wives took lots of good photos. There were also professional photographers along the way who took photos. If there is a good one of me I might buy a print.
I retired my shoes after the race. I added up the miles on them and it was over 350 so it was time for a new pair. I bought the same kind - Asics Gel Nimbus 9's. I didn't like them at first because I always ran Nike Air Max's but they have grown on me.
I am going to try to run another half marathon in June. If I can't schedule a half marathon I might try a 10K. I have never raced that short of a distance and I am curious.
