Well my first race of the season – a half marathon. As for results – lets just say a kid that just turned 12 beat me. But barely! Actually I thought that the race was pretty tough – some good hills and Lakefront wind, narrow course, some puddles and mud slicks. OK – no more excuses. Actually there are none needed. I ran a great race 😀
Dont really know my first mile since I goofed up the watch. Mile 2 was completed 6:50 miles 3 about the same. After that I lost track but know that I was keeping it under a 7:00 minute mile pace. Tried like crazy to pass that little kid – every time I started to make a move he responded – dang -it. Hung with him to the end he only got me by a couple of seconds and I PR’ed in 1:28:1x a new PR by 14:1x!!!
Could have done better but only by a handful of seconds. On to tomorrow’s 17 mile training run. 😉
