Asheville, NC Half Marathon & 5K

It’s been a while. The beginning of the semester crush + my conference presentation at HighEdWeb 2012 + a bachelorette party in San Francisco = little time for blogging.

Last month was the Asheville, North Carolina Half Marathon and 5K.

I ran my first half marathon ever. I’ve been training since June and came in at 1 hour, 50 minutes. That was 40 minutes faster than my race registration time and 10 minutes faster than my personal best. I placed 16th in my age group, and 293rd out of over 1,300 runners. I’m really proud of how well I did and I think I might be addicted!

My hubby ran his 5K in 22 min 23 sec. This is only the second time he’s ever competed in a 5K (his first he ran 28 min). He came in 29th OVERALL (nearly 800 runners) and WON his age group! Yep, he got a gold medal folks. It’s huge.
