    March 31, 2007. I ran the Cook Forest Half Marathon (13.1 miles) with my 15 year old daughter Lauren. I done a lot of running in Dec., Jan., Feb., & Mar. to get myself ready. I ran 80.1 miles in Jan., 60.2 miles in Feb. and ended Mar. with 100.2 miles including the 1/2 Marathon. It was the most physically demanding, punishishing thing I've done since I did this race 3 years ago! I crossed the finish line at exactly 2:00:00. My daughter finished at 2:26:23 and claimed 3rd place for her age group. It was a very rewarding experience to complete this race with my daughter!. I have to tell you that crossing that finish line after running 13.1 miles is a super feeling!

    Scott that was GREAT! Especially to run it with your daughter.

    13.1 miles was always too far for me. I can appreciate it for I once ran in a 10K (6.2 miles). I would have came in next to last but I let this couple pass me for they were trying so hard. :smile2:

    Now days, I try to daily walk 3 miles/45 min. and that is about my limit.

    Personally I don't run unless my life is in jeopardy, but congrats anyway.
