My favorite route to run, and today I ran my best pace yet on it.  12 miles in 2:07.

Brand new Brooks and now it's pollen season. It shouldn't bother me this much.

I finished my first half marathon this weekend, and I have one question:  does everyone else's marathon have donuts too?   There was a table full of donuts at one of the water stations around mile 9 or so.  I thought it was for the volunteers, but then why would there be hundreds of donuts for just 10 volunteers or so at one water station?  In hindsight, maybe I could have used a donut rather than a 100 calorie gel that wasn't working fast enough, but I wouldn't want to be the fat guy stopping to eat a donut in the middle of a half-marathon and I wouldn't want to risk wasting time in line for a port-a-potty.  Is this a thing, though?  I didn't see any bananas or oranges...

Training towards my first half marathon and enjoyed a change of scenery for today's 12 mile run (PR for distance).  I ran the Brushy Creek Trail in Cedar Park, TX.  I didn't realize I was starting at the highest elevation and turning around at the lowest elevation.  The last 3 miles were brutal, but I made it and had a good laugh at my V shaped elevation chart.

Trying another one from Clown Shoes. Great labels, great beers.

Perfect weather and ran my best pace yet for 8+ miles.  So inspiring to be a part of this great running community.   #megsmiles  

I've got a question for the guys regarding running shorts.   I'm training for my first half and now that I've made it into the 8-10 mile zone I need to do something about the chafing.  I currently wear light-weight shorts with a liner.  Should I just try the anti-chafing balm, should I try wearing compression underwear under liner-less shorts, or should I try compression shorts? I'm a big guy and I don't want to look stupid or embarrassing on race day, I just don't want a trivial problem like this to make me miserable.

Great out-of-town run with my dog!   If only all the people running for doorbusters would realize this is a much more refreshing way to spend Thanksgiving.

Still can't stop watching this. I get goosebumps just hearing it in the other room.

Really good run last night and broke most of my personal records , even on a stubbed toe from too many toys left on the floor the night before. It was the first time I tried a gel during my run. That made a huge difference.
