dyk, I did not finish in 2 1/2 hours, bit I shouldn't have worried - the BAA doesn't discourage people, at tge very least I know my unofficial time of 2:37 and change

dyk, the trainer PR'd at 1:35 and change

dyk, he then ran back and ran the last 1+ mile with me

DYK on the medical costs, do you find prescription discount cards? It's amazing how many I can find. I think all of Eric's ADHD meds have had discounts. I found one for Focalin that brought it down to only a $15 co-pay.
DYK that helps a lot, especially since none of the meds seem to be effective yet, so I have to dispose of them.

dyk, I am SO SORE - my legs, back, arms, abs, feet, everywhere really

dyk, my feet hurt to move them, even just to wiggle my toes. I am most certainly walking the 10k today.

dyk, a couple of fun facts from yesterdays half

-Kung pao tofu is not a good pre-race dinner.

-at about mile 2 I felt like I was going to throw up my cliff bar

-at about mile 4.5 I realized that I had to pee; it wasn't until about 3 hours later that I got to pee. It must have been mental.

-at mile 8-ish I had almost a full cup of Gatorade (usually it's half a cup or less) and a Powerade Gel. The gel was nasty, between the 2 I over fueled, and my stomach was angry.

-at mile 8.5-ish I was HOT and pushed my sleeves up. By mile 9.5 I was freezing.

-shortly after the mile 11 marker there was a gigantic hill. I would like a word with the genius that planned the course.

-I walked up that hill texting. I then realized that my BACK was NUMB. Apparently sweating in 50 degree weather will numb body parts.

-the end of the race was through a zoo. If I'm going to run/walk through a zoo, I expect to see animals.

-they were out of bananas by the time I made the mile walk from the finish to the food tents that were "just down that path"
