You Got to Love Running

I'm still on a bit of a high from Sunday's Marathon. It was hard and my time was not what I wanted, but it was what I expected. The next marathon will be much better. I even thought about changing the half next month to a full.
But, then I found this stat. Now I'm thinking about giving the sport up. You see, I don't mind finishing behind a lot of runners. But, not this runner.
I compared my half marathon from last year with Javamom's half this year. Can you believe the results - Javamom 2008 vs. Pat 2oo7

Pat, you let Lisa beat you? Oh wait you ran it last year, she beat you fair and square. Com on Pat, you might need to pick up needlepoint or something. On a serious note, you both did awesome. I would be honored to run with either of you again.

That's an amazing comparison! But, like you said, you were faster through the first ten miles. You just need somebody to kick your butt for the last 3 miles!
