Saw many PRTers out there today (JillieD, Notey, genie to name 3)! Notey said he came in 28th or something ridiculous out there. JillieD said she had a PR!<br><br>
I feel guilty for writing since I don't yet know how jensparks, EQ, or vogel MD did today. I did hang with Jen a little this morning, she looked great and was quite ready. Saw her again just before we half marathon folks split off at mile 3 and she was actually slightly behind me! A great sign for her as we were right on an 8:45 pace at that point and she obviously wasn't going out too fast! She was smiling of course. My fingers are crossed.<br><br>
Me, you ask? Was hoping for a 1:54 like last year, but I'll settle for the 1:55.13 (8:48 pace). I executed very well; race splits were all fairly even; the last 2 miles were my two fastest and last mile my fastest (closed with an 8:30 and an 8:20). My pectineus and adductors bothered me throughout and were quite painful by the end. It's not an injury - I could still run hard but the last few years at this distance or longer, they've really, really hurt. It's not supposed to be this painful. So, I learned from this race that the next time I do this distance or longer (!), I will really focus my ART doctor on them, 2-3 times a week if I have to. WHo knows, maybe it'll make me a faster distance runner.<br><br>
caitopotato surprised the heck out of when she came up on me at mile 12 and asked how I was doing. I said "I've been better. Pull me". And she did! I was running pretty hard at that point, passing a lot of fellow mid-packers, but she was really turning it up! (She said, later, "I know, you were really hard to catch." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> ) She then pulled ahead a bit, but I was closing fast at the wire and she just beat me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Thanks, caito! That was great!<br><br>
Beer and football now. Goodluck jensparks, vogel and EQ!

Arrojo -<br><br>
First, congrats on a well executed half marathon. It sounds like you did very well. Sorry you were a bit slower than last year, but heck, you still ran a great time!

Nice race Arrojo! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> I was trying to catch up to you just before your turnoff. I'm glad I saw you kind of looking around so I knew I could get your attention with a little yell from behind.<br><br>
You're a smart man, letting caito pull you, she's been running hella great!

Great to hear you had a good day, Arrojo. I'm feeling a little jealous that I wasn't out there to see all these people I've always wanted to meet. And great to hear about Caito too.<br><br>
Is there a new Caito's Rule in here? Something about "follow that woman?"
