      The New Jersey Half Marathon

    Well, it all came together today for a great race.  Finally the weather cooperated with almost perfect conditions, a little warm, but I can't complain after how cold it has been at my last few races.  I managed to keep a really even pace throughout and finished strong.  I had the chance to tuck in behind some other guys on the few stretches where the wind was a factor, and had people pushing or pulling me most of the race.  No one who passed me stayed there, I chased each guy down and came in 6th place, 1st in the 30 – 34 age group.    Here are the splits:

    1)  6:00
    2)  5:56
    3)  6:02
    4)  6:01
    5)  5:58
    6)  6:04
    7)  6:00
    8)  6:03
    9)  6:07
    10) 5:59
    11) 6:00
    12) 5:57
    13) 5:47!
    .1) 0:32

    1:18:32, just a hair under 6 minute pace!  I could not have run any faster.  On to the summer racing season, and chemo cycle 10 starting tomorrow.

    Tim – That is staggering…are you sure that your chemo treatments aren't manufactured by BALCO???

    Keep up the good work.  Inspirational.
