City of Angels Half - The Results Show

Tyler reports sore legs but has neglected to take any Tylenol.

It looks like we might have a decent finish line photo after all. 2:07:25 for the both of us, exactly the time I had on my watch. I think its pretty cool that his overall pace was faster than his 10K pace. He stayed strong to the end. I forgot to mention yesterday that we caught and passed the 10:00 pace group at mile 4 and never saw them again.

To Danny's lament I did not carry my camera along on this run. I left my Fuelbelt at home; it has the nifty little pockets for carrying such things. I insisted that we wait in the long line to get our photo taken with the medals. I sure hope Brightroom comes through for us.

I skipped today's planned 2-miler in favor of tofu and eggplant Lisa had picked up from Panda Express on her way home from work. I spent another hour at the ER earlier this evening while she got 3 stitches in the heel of her left hand compliments of picture frame glass.

Nice job, gentlemen. I too would pass up a two miler if I was offered Chinese food, even chain variety :-)

Ouch on the ER visit. Hope she's OK!

SOOOO AWESOME Darrell.... Congrats to both of you and I am sure you guys got some great pics together!!

Tyler's like me stubborn on taking anything ....umm but I do have to confess I have taking a few ALEVE's the past 2 days and it helped.

My calve issue the last 5 miles was pretty freaky, never had spasms like that...was able to power walk as fast as I could but then I tried to run again and 50 yards later the calves spasmed again...I am sooo hoping it was just beat legs that need to just recover :-)

COngrats again to both of you and I love that pic of you and your son with the same "IMPRESSIVE" race time!! 9:44 rocks!!!

Great race for you and your son. It's interesting how closely your age-graded results are, with the exact same time and age difference between you. I never understand how that stat works.

Congratulations on the half. I hope Lisa is healing up. Sorry to hear about the accident. Take good care of her.

Pat said...

tyler's a stud. He must get it from his dad. Hope Lisa is doing ok.

Loved the POV in the previous post and the way you lead this one with Tyler. Spoken like a proud papa.

How cool!

In my experience, all those sport photo oufits take a good picture only by sheer luck. Of course, by the finish line we usually don't look too good (at least, I don't).

It's the experience that counts, I tell myself. And this was a good one :).

That picture hanging can be very dangerous. She should take up running instead.
