Half Marathon #2 and a New PR



My goal for this half was 2:02:00. About 5 miles into the race, I knew I’d make that easily and changed my goal to come in under 2:00:00.

I did it!

My official finish time was 1:58:53 with a pace of 9:04 per mile. I am beyond thrilled!

Here are some nifty stats:

66/387 for age division – 17.05%

559/3456 for all women – 16.17%

5 mile time – 45:16

10 mile time – 1:30:21 (second 5 miles were slightly faster than first 5)

Chip time – 1:58:53

Pace – 9:04

The first half of the race took me 59:24.6. The second half took me 59:28.4. So… another negative split by 3.8 seconds!!!!

I’m completely wasted right now and resting. This was the perfect race. Perfect  weather, just a slight breeze, great crowd support, great course! There were 3 decent hills which made it, overall, a  tougher course than my first half of the year… but they were still pretty manageable!

The way this race runs is truly from one dam in the suburbs to a dam downtown. Buses deliver you to the start line and you can just barely see our tallest building from the dam… and that’s where you’re running to! It’s truly awesome!

    1. Thank you! I never thought I’d say this, but I’d like to get rid of 5 seconds so I can average under 9:00 miles. That probably won’t happen this year…. Not in Colorado, anyway!
