I was upset with Jazz because there was no sign on the New Orleans bar rooting for Leslie, myself and the Kenner boxing club while we ran the Rock and Roll Half Marathon today.
Ok so my Garmin watch said I ran 13.21 in 2 hours 11 minutes. My Runtastic app said I did it in 2 hours and 13 minutes and the race results say I ran it in 2 hours and 16 minutes. I say bullshit!! I am thinking that maybe I stopped before the final chip timing mat and that’s why the race results seem slow. They put down 3-4 mats at the finish line. Perhaps I thought I was passed the final mat already. I guess I will have to go with the 2 hours and 13 minutes because its almost an average of the 3 varying times. I wanted so badly to do this in 2:10 minutes but I fell apart at mile 10. My right foot is killing me. The Kids from the boxing team did fantastic. 3 of them finished the half in under 1 hour and 40 minutes. They were flying. I finished the race within 6 minutes of 4 of them. I told Axel the coach that they need to step it up if a slow person like me can keep pace with them. LOL. So proud of Leslie. Her first half marathon and she did great!! OK off to catch a plane fro San Diego. I am hurting right now.
