My First Half-Marathon

Debbi and I before the race started
Starting the race
Oh Yeah!
Crossing the finish line
My race stats. The altitude slowed me down because it was difficult to catch my breath and I was getting a stitch in my side. Somewhere around mile 9, my leg started to seriously cramp up and it was difficult to run. However, when I saw the finish line, I ran in the last 1/2 mile. I was ahead of Debbi for most of the race, but she passed me at mile 12 and finished two minutes ahead of me. My official chip time was 03:10:59. Not bad for my first race! 

I bought a juicer

I bought a juicer - The Omega 8004. 
I used my 20% coupon from Bed, Bath, & Beyond, so I got it at a very reasonable price. 

My first batch of vegetable juice. 
(Kale, Handful of Baby Carrots, 1 Red Delicious Apple, 1 Lime, Handful of Cilantro, Hint of Ginger) 
I've been juicing for about two weeks now, and I can TOTALLY tell a difference. 
My energy level is higher and I generally feel better.
The juicer was delivered in a giant box with another box in it, which my cat was really happy about.
