I had a great race the other day at the Allstate 13.1 Atlanta Half Marathon. Not my personal record fastest time but a good effort and I staved off cramps. I also enjoyed getting to use my Wahoo Blue heart rate monitor. Coupled with RunKeeper I got great feedback along the race route that helped keep me motivated and within my comfort zone. Below is an animated gif image Richard Bakare put together from some stills of me at the finish line. With just a couple of weeks rest, we’ll be right back at it again with a 50 mile bike ridge for charity, Spin for Kids, which I have mentioned in a previous post. At the end of the month, we wrap up our competitive 2012 running season at the 2012 Monster Dash Atlanta half marathon. After that, it’s time for some rest with a little skiing here and there.
