half marathon results

My time: 1:58
I placed 253 overall out of 695
Out of the women I placed 99th out of 413
In my age division 30-39, I placed 41 out of 132.

Not bad. Actually I'm really pleased that I ran the distance at all since I haven't run that far since my last race in October. Now I can start building on that for the next one in Vancouver in May.

After the race yesterday I ran into someone from my running room group who said they are training for the Marathon distance in Vancouver. I'll think it over this week. I know I could do it, but the question is: should I focus on my times for the half marathon and work on improving those?

I've got a week to think about that question since next Sunday the group is running 25k.
