Marathon update

I finished this half marathon! First I'd like to thank all the people that gave money to help the kids of KLM and allowed me to participate. Good on you folks. I definitely didn't win any fundraising awards but we exceeded the recommended amount.

The marathon itself was a lot of fun. The course was up in these beautiful misty mountains and mostly downhill. My time was 1:46:30 (approximately), which made me the fastest Peace Corps in the half race. I was shooting for two hours, so I was pretty proud of myself, though there were some real runners in the 56 km race that would have smoked me. Today I'm incredibly sore, so I'm going to take it easy for a day.
