Every morning in Africa, an antelope wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion, or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest antelope, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or an antelope -- when the sun comes up, you'd better be running. -African proverb

Go Ducks!

I became a University of Oregon fan this past weekend.  Loved, loved, loved the Eugene half marathon!  College towns are so much fun, especially those that embrace running like Eugene does.  Everything was perfect -- the course, the weather, the fans.  It was a great weekend!  Not only did I get to run an awesome race and land a new PR (slight, but still a PR), I also got to hang out with one of my favorite running buddies, Cara, and my newest running buddy, Katie.  Next time we need to make the trip longer, though, so we can rest up before hitting the outlets!

I also came up with a new tradition.  I brought Reno Running Company shirts for both Cara and Katie.  And, Cara gave me a Shu's Idaho Running Company shirt (she's from Boise).   I am hoping to add to my new collection each time I go somewhere new to race.  Better stock up, Aimee!  ;)
Back to the race ...                                                        
Here are my stats:
  • finished in 1:36:25
  • 197/3719 overall
  • 45/2416 women
  • 5/297 age group
Overall, I am happy with my race, but not completely satisfied.  A sub-135 is next on my goal list.  Just need to find a good race!  Any ideas?

Until soon, Sportsfans ...
