Cue Theme music

I finished the Manchester Half Marathon. With a 10:14 pace even! I actually had a much better time at this race because I got to run with K for the first time in a very, very long time. We have mostly stopped running together because the disparity in our paces makes both of us grumpy when we try. But yesterday, he needed to slow down for the first half and I needed to keep on pace and somehow those two numbers came together close enough that we ran together for over 9 miles, only splitting then due to a pit stop. K was able to finish his first 26.2 with a 10:48 pace, right on target for him. So a successful day all around!
