Running down the road

SF half marathon

We started in the fog in Golden Gate park and it was still overcast at the finish around 10:45a though I managed to get some sun anyway - my cheeks are very rosy.  I came away with contact burns on the undersides of both my arms (and a very odd spot from keeping my key in the shorts pocket, which I don't usually do), and my right glute and knee are sore.  While they're right that the second half is less hilly, it also includes several big downhills, which do in fact still hurt more than uphill.  But after 19 months I finished a half marathon again.

In 2:17:32.

Which is a new PR.  How the hell did that happen?
