I"m 47 and weigh in at 158 pounds. Hopefully I haven't bitten off more than I can chew with my Bataan commitment. But I'm really looking forward to it being my first. My brother who also shoots is going to run it again so I'll have some moral support along the way.

Congratulations!! I can't imagine maintaining that pace over and entire 1/2.
Nice. 1/2's are tough for sure, just wait for the big dance. Last half I ran, finished in 2:30, but my gf at the time had an asthma attack at the 8 mile mark, and we walked/jogged the rest. We were averaging 7 min miles until then. Pushed too hard I spose.
Also the little GU energy packs are great. They even have little chewy squares as well. Go into a bike shop and you can find them at the checkout counter like candy at a convenience store. The warm up gatorade (G1 i think) liquid packs are also nice for pre-activity stuff.
