I'm moving on up

I checked the PF Chang's RnR Marathon website again by clicking any of the blue in the last post and my time improved. I now finished in 2:49:54. If this keeps up, by next month I might be under 2 hours.

I, also found out that I finished in 14,525th place out of 20,245 runners in the half. I finished 815th out of 977 men between the ages of 45-49. I was the 6359 man to cross the finish line.

Again, great run Pat. You had 5,720 finish after you. For a guy who couldn't jog a mile on a bet a year ago, you certainly come a long way. We this great base, you'll have lots of fun training for Tucson.

My name is Robert Key and I am a local runner in the Houston area. I recently ran the half-marathon in Houston with my son (his furthest race to date). I saw a post today of Vic's blog from Houston where he posted his marathon experience for Houston from Sunday, was blown away by it, then started reading links to other bloggers, which is how I came across yours. My web site http://www.faithfulsoles.com is dedicated to inspiring, encouraging and motivating walkers, runners and athletes of all abilities, and I am in the process of developing a running blog search engine where people can find and read blogs that most closely fit their own ability and goals. I would be grateful if you would register a link to your running blog with my web site. From the home page, under "Free Features" in the lefthand column, just click on "Link your running blog". Thanks.
