This is the race where I discovered Morton's Neuroma. The last half of the race I felt like a spike had been driven through my left foot. It was miserable, but I finished.
What would you do differently?:

I would have gone to a doctor sooner to explore the pain in my left foot I started experiencing during practice before the race.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and enjoyed the festivities. I was in pain and disappointed with my time, but I finished my first half-marathon, so I was happy about that!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Foot pain.

Event comments:

There was a marking error so the race was actually a bit shorter than half-marathon difference. This was the first one and Andy will have it fixed for next year.
