Well, I survived... barely!
The race was really tough. The fatigue from the race hit at about mile 7, at about the same time as the hills and the wind! But if my watch is right, I was about 1 second per mile slower than I had predicted to Paulo last night, based on my level of fitness and level of fatigue.
7:48 per mile average
184 HR average
Max HR...204 Damn hills!
Not great, but very solid race for me give the circumstances.
My training buddy, Tony, had a fantastic race! His half mary PR is somewhere in the 2:10 range, and he hit 1:25 today! That's a 8:30 per mile pace. What an improvement. I am so happy for him!
Great to see some other friends out there today. Jen, Sam, Christina, Dave- Great race everyone!
