US Half Marathon Championships
|Trafeh in Blue & Ryan Hall (2nd) in White Singlet|
Today I cheered for the elite runners in the US Olympic Marathon Trials in Houston. I saw Mo Trafeh (1st place, 1:02:17), Ryan Hall (1:02:20) and Jen Rhines (1st place, 1:11:14, a PR). By the time I saw them, they'd run about 9 miles - fast!

When the runners ran away from us, my Weimaraner howled like she does when there's a fire truck nearby. Funny! I guess she wanted to run, too.
|1/2 serving of the "Marathon Pasta" $10|
I went to Carrabba's for lunch and I ate whole wheat pasta, chicken, artichokes, red peppers and asparagus. I could only eat 1/2. I'm eating more carbs, but not eating more food than usual.
Rainy day race tip: I wear sunglasses to keep some of the rain out of my eyes. Commencing take-off! Tomorrow! Houston Marathon!
