Mission accomplished. A sub 2:00 1/2 marathon. This race with A was a blast. We had an early morning, but then just a short drive up the road to the new light rail station and rode the rail all the way to downtown Phoenix. We did have to take a mid-ride break so A could use the bathroom prior to the port-a-potty lines. Good thing cause she never would have made it waiting in those lines.
One we arrived downtown we had a nice 1 mile run to the start line that was a good warm-up. When the gun went off we quickly found our stride and space to run and shed layers at mile 2. Highs in the upper 70's today. Home to ice-bath in the pool and them some Filibertos. Full report later after the Cardinals game. What a day already!

What's with the "Fauxhawk"? I say commit to the Mohawk. :) Strong work on the half marathon.

That's the second Fauxhawk accusation I've gotten. It is actually the real deal, but will sadly go away before work in the morning.
