I ran the Half this weekend in Pasadena and it was a bunch of fun.
I was doing great , 9 minute mile for first 4 miles then a cramp!!! Walked for a little bit then I had to stop for 20 min ti get rid of it, it keept bugging me till the finish line but I didn't quit... I wanted to at mile 8 (and at 10) I almost slapped myself at mile 12 but I Finished under the course time limit !!
