Back in April I ran my first half marathon. I live blogged it with twitter and twitpic as many of you may have followed along. Here is the archived race report dredged up from the dregs of internet history (had to grab my back tweets from twitter history, maybe you just want a local backup of your last 3200 tweets, I used dacort’s easy one liner unix command).
My official net time was 02:28:06 which is great considering how ill I had been the three months before the race thus cutting into my training. I truly focused on slowing down at the beginning, enjoying the run, and talking to some fellow racers as I liveblogged. Having my friends cheer me on via @replies on twitter was definitely a motivation. I will sign up for a marathon in june or july of 2010, and hopefully run another half during my training. Here is my shot at the finish, with the non-adjusted time:
If I liveblog another race, here is what I would want to have:
a more waterproof mobile device
number pad typing much easier than full keyboard typing while running
voice to text would be ideal
gps coordinates added to each post
auto distance from gps calculated with splits would be awesome
