Race Day Photo Diary

Now that the race is over I can tell you two things. I finished the race and I didn't fall apart at mile 10. I fell apart at mile 6 and unraveled through mile 10. But I didn't quit, which makes me an official, bone-fide half-marathoner and dare I say, athlete?

To view my online photo album, complete with running commentary on my half-marathon adventure, just click on the photo below and that will take you to my album. Along with the photos is a graphic image from my Garmin 305 that shows my pace, the elevation and other sundry bits of information that were recorded during the half-marathon.

Racewalker Results from the 2006 Napa to Sonoma Half-Marathon. To find my results will require scrolling to about eight names up from the bottom...but it's there, and since I've never raced before, the time I set in the half-marathon was my personal best time ever!!!

Well, I think you've done an outstanding job and I give you a hearty congratulations. Finishing one's first half-marathon is a real marathon and the hardest one I ever finished was the one I WALKED. You're a brave soul for tackling a southern california race. I've driven the hills of Napa Valley and would not want to do a road race on them.
