Seattle Marathon - Half Marathon

Myeloma Marathon Runner Don had a great race, although we did have to thaw him out afterward.

Sweet Pea and I had a lovely time, in spite of light rain, until about mile 10 when the rain and the wind really got going.
The last half marathon she and I ran was Hartford in mid-October. Unfortunately we didn't run anywhere near enough stairs to train for Seattle hills.
Muscles across my rib cage on my back are nearly killing me now, and I do need to figure out some "training" for that pain.
Wondering where all the old women of Seattle are: I finished first out of ONE in my age group.

Have always loved Seattle and still do.
Besides the race, we have walked down at the piers, seen a Washington State Ferry come in, seen the Christmas lights and greens at Pioneer Square, and had a clear view of Mount Rainier.

Sounds like a nice experience, even with the extended recovery period. :) Take those age group placings where you can get 'em!
