  2. Finished SF Half Marathon (1st half) in 2:23:45 including 1 bathroom break. Likely would have PR'd without bathroom break, beating my first half marathon (and PR) of 2:22 from #KPSF this past February: tantek.com/2014/033/t2/finished-first-halfmarathon-rain-cold-wind Also beat my April #RnRSF time of 2:29 by ~6 minutes: http://tantek.com/2014/096/t1/finished-rnrsf-ran-hills-thanks And that was a more comparable course to SF First Half. This was my third half marathon (attempted and completed).
