Running a half-marathon

Christine cheers her sister on during yesterday's Boston Half Marathon:

... Afterwards over lunch I asked Sharon how she managed to look so fresh and upbeat at the end of her 13 mile journey. She said that her goal was to stay tuned in physically and mentally during the race; to listen to what her instincts and body were telling her and to move through the course at a pace where she felt energized yet comfortable. ...

Jonelle ran the race, but realized she's getting too old to do stuff like not train AND play in an Ultimate Frisbee match the same day:

... The folly of this didn't really hit me until mile 10 of the race, at which point, I slowed down. In my ten or so years of running this is maybe the only logical decision I've ever made during a road race.
