Endure and persist; this pain will turn to your good. - Ovid

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. - Romans 5:1-5

Race: Great Salt Lake Half Marathon (13.1 Miles) 01:14:10, Place overall: 6

Great Salt Lake Half Marathon. I was hoping to redeem myself after a poor performance last year, but only did slightly better. Still, technically it's a PR, but one I'm not thrilled with. To be fair, I didn't taper for this race and have been increasing my mileage, so there is probably some fatigue. I still don't like this course.
