Ok.. maybe more like a slow jog…

This past weekend, I “ran” my first half marathon – the Golden Gate Headlands Half Marathon. Technically, according to the standings, I never actually finished. Sadly, they just read my bib number wrong… you will have to just take my word for it. Two weeks of intense training with Lijen that involved waking up early and doing a mix of ballpark and hill runs really helped get me physically and mentally prepared.

I won’t ever consider myself a runner but I must admit that a few good miles sometimes feels really good and does wonders for your energy. In case you want to do some hiking in the Marin Headlands, this trail is an awesome place with some beautiful views of the ocean, the Golden Gate bridge, and a nice rock beach to have some grub… or for those more adventurous, you can run your own half marathon =).

UPDATE: Here are some photos of the event.
