In eager anticipation of the Marine Corps Marathon next month, I ran the Ikea Half Marathon this past weekend.

Soooo, try as I might to look on the bright side, I'm still fairly disappointed with my time - I really really wanted to go sub 2-hours, but it was not to be. However, I still had a really good time with the TNT gang, as evidenced by the stolen pictures below:
Less than 7 weeks until the real thing. Oorah.
Also - anyone looking for an excuse to come to Pittsburgh next spring...
