Just a quick check-in before I get to work packing for Boise. The Whidbey Half Marathon came and went successfully, and my cold abated enough that it was not a major factor. The course was, however, considerably harder (more and steeper hills) than last year! My time reflected that. I am waiting for the chip times to be posted in hopes that I might squeak under two hours... but as of now my finish time on the clock was 2:02:22. No point in complaining, "it is what it is," as they say.
I do want to spend a lot more time writing about the Whidbey experience, but I'll wait until I get my pictures up and have a little more free time on my hands. That will probably be in Boise, because what am I going to do for almost three days waiting for the race on Saturday? I plan to go for a run tomorrow morning before I leave (assuming I get up early enough), and maybe another light run in Boise on Thursday, but obviously I can't be wearing myself out. And I don't want to spend a lot of money shopping... so that leaves reading and writing for me!
