Half a Marathon + No Training = Horrible Cramps

In case you were wondering, I finished the half-marathon this morning. My time was somewhere around 2:06:00, so I didn’t quite make my personal goal of < 2:00:00. Actually, I started off really well, running about 1:30 for the first 10 miles. At mile 11 I had horrible leg cramps and needed to walk. Unfortunatly, they stayed with me the remainder of the race. I finished it out and I’m glad I had the experience.

One thing is for sure, I don’t plan on doing any long distant runs again without some serious training first. I was nuts~!

way to be aaron! that's still awesome even not hitting under 2 hours - barely. i'd die after 2 miles and that would take me 2 hours!
