Half of a Half.
The Royal Victoria Marathon is today.
I'm supposed to be running the Half Marathon. (I'd be finishing as I type this, actually.)
But because of how my foot was this summer I wasn't able to train properly, and decided not to race. I could probably have gone down this weekend and muddled through the distance, but I wouldn't have finished with any time that I would be proud of.
But I still wanted to run.
So today I headed out - and while I didn't do the full distance, I did do a distance - 6.55 miles - exactly half the distance of a Half Marathon.
It was as good as I could do for just getting back in shape.
Have no fear, next year I'll be posting my actual finish time - and bragging my ass off,
