1:38, and getting quicker.....

The Oak Bay Half was a semi successful day, clocking in at 1:38 and making 4th in my division.  Everything went great, except for the final 1500M when my calves started to cramp and consequently, to my dismay, I had to slow my pace to a jog-no fair!!  Otherwise I would have been on target for a 1:34-1:36ish.  Good learning experience, I guess I actually need to drink more then one small sip of water on course!  Nevertheless, I felt really good on race day, which is a rare occurrence and shows me that some positive physiological changes are occurring with regard to my aerobic and anaerobic system.  Good race, solid performance.  I will get speedier!

John 15: 1-4

"I am the true vine; my Father is the gardener.  He cuts off every branch of mine that does not produce fruit.  And he trims and cleans every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce even more fruit.  You are already clean because of the words I have spoken to you.  Remain in me, and I will remain in you."

John 15: 16-17

"You did not choose me; I chose you.  And I gave you this work: to go and produce fruit, fruit that will last.  Then the Father will give you anything you ask for in my name.  This is my command : Love each other."
