Pretty sweet performance for your first half mary...especially since you've been so sick!  Nice work!  I hope you get to feeling 100% very soon.

Great race! I was looking at doing this one, but it just didn't fit into my schedule. 1:52 is excellent!

WOW! Great time Steve! If this is how you do when lacking training, just imagine how fast you'd be without dealing with being sick! Congratulations on your first half mary!!!!
