A few of you have asked that I post more about my running, so here it goes! If you follow me on Twitter, you know that yesterday my dad, mom, and I ran the SF marathon (only the half marathon though, not the full marathon; we're not that hardcore... yet!). I'm super proud of my dad... this was his first half marathon and he did amazing! He said he's 90% sure he's going to do it again next year!
This was the 5th half marathon my mom and I have run (the first one being two years ago). My mom set a PR (personal record) for herself, and I placed 3rd in my age division out of 53. It's an incredible feeling to run alongside so many people from all over the world. It's also incredibly cool to be able to run right in the middle of the streets of San Francisco, since all the roads are blocked off for runners. I mean, come on, when else are you going to be able to do that??
The best part about running any race is the next day you can do absolutely positively nothing and not feel guilty about it! Needless to say, today is a complete and utter personal day, full of reading (i'm currently reading the secret life of bees) and watching the Olympics with my family.
