Since the riding conditions have been so poor this winter, I've been doing a little running. Since I don't like running, I entered myself in the Peterborough Half Marathon for motivation. The event was today and it was a beautiful day for riding but I ran anyway. I was hoping to finish in 2 hr 20 min, but did it in 2 hr 09 min. More importantly I beat my brother by 4 minutes. He's been doing these things for 30 years this was my first, but to be fair he's an old guy at 66 and I'm just a young whipper snapper at 60. Hope the cross training is going to help on the bike.
