Personal:

I retired from the Army after 26 years of service in 2010.  I moved home to Arizona.  My wife and I are empty nesters.  In 2016 I had stents placed in my heart after discovering coronary artery disease.  Since early 2016 I have lost 30 lbs and got in much better shape.  August 2017 I retired again and we are going on a mission to Mexico in OCtober 2017.

tough day for me.  I knew I wasn't ready to run fast.  i was hoping to run 10:30 pace but my final time was @ 11:51 pace.  I really didn't know what to expect from the altitude and the hills and I was not ready for that at all.  Mike's phone gave the following splits for us for the first 6 miles 9:30, 10:18, 10:35, 10:58 (hills), 10:31. 10:10.  I didn't stay with Mike much longer than 6.5 miles.  He finished in 2:17:24.  I fought off thoughts of stopping.  I knew I had slowed down alot and I just tried to hang in there.  I am super sore in the quads which makes me think that the climbing was most of the challenge.  Anyway.. I ran a half marathon when I was 16 and did it in 75 minutes in Nebraska.   i'll never see times like that again.
