1:43:49 as per Garmin. Official time: 1:44:23. My official time is slower because I stopped my watch for a POP break in mile three. Perfect weather. I jogged about a half mile before the race and another half mile after wards.Well organized race. Hope everybody gets paid on time this year. Got about 3 hours of sleep. I need to figure out what to do about my sleep issues on race days. Felt pretty strong until about mile 10, couldn't maintain pace. Good last mile though as I was eager to get finished. I felt good after the race. I think I could've/should've pushed harder. Lately I've determined in training too that I need to do more speed work, the kind that hurts, mostly to get my mind wrapped around it. So roughly a 5 (4 minutes, 19 seconds), minute PR over my time at the Ogden half last year. And about 2 minutes faster than my little breakthrough training run a couple of weeks ago (04-03-10).
My buddy Lysa (on the blog) ran a really good half today and PR'd!
I'm happy with my result. I am, after all, 46 yrs old. I've only been doing this consistent running thing for less than 2 years. I'm hoping to get PR's still when I'm into my 50's.
