My fabulous friends came out to see me, so that was quite nice! One of them even wrote my name in huge yellow letters on the road. So cute! I'm definitely going to run it again next year, but I plan to train. My fastest time was 3 years ago or so and that was 2 h and 8 min. I think I can beat that next year, especially if I keep X'ing! Of course, I might want to try other beachbody workouts so we'll see what happens!

I made through my half marathon today, and I'm really happy with the results! Because of P90X, I have not been running at all. I literally ran 4.5 miles a couple weeks ago, and that was it. I've done a full marathon before though, and this was my fourth half. The weather was actually perfect in Pittsburgh today for a long run. It was in the 50s, and it ended up raining a little bit. It kept me nice and cool the whole time. My slowest half ever (when I even trained was around 2 h and 25 min). Today I finished in 2 h and 26 min, and I even stopped on the course to use the bathroom which easily took up about 8 minutes. My HRM claims I burned over 2500 calories! I have to say that I think P90X had a lot to do with my ability to do this. I think a lot of it is mental too.
