What limited your ability to perform faster:

I haven't really done anything since Thanksgiving. Just been too busy b/w kids, work, house addition and holidays. Not too bad considering I was only 2 min. behind my time for my first half marathon when I actually trained for it. I was 10 minutes slower than last year though. Just needed to get a kick start for this coming year of racing. Hopefully I can dedicate some time to train for a few tri's this year, mainly Soma HIM.

Great run! You managed to keep your heart rate consistent throughout the race and it showed in your time.

You did great! I find it soooo hard to train during break with the kids, especially during the winter when there are so many other fun things to do. I think they should shave a seconds per kid don't you think?
