Well I had a decent race today. The weather cooperated. It was in the mid to low 60's with some rain/drizzle this year. Much better than the weather at the Marine Corps Half I did in October.<br>
I did feel very stiff in my back in the entire run but overall I felt like I ran well. I wasn't sure how I would feel during the run. I tried to ignore the tightness in my back and legs and just rumble through it and I felt like I did.<br>
Here is the short version.<br>
Splits:<br>
Gun to Start Line Mat: 0:0:44<br>
Mile 1: 1.02 in 7:57 (7:48 )<br>
Mile 2: .98 in 7:47 (7:56)<br>
Mile 3: 1.00 in 7:43 (7:45)<br>
Mile 4: 1.01 in 7:51 (7:46)<br>
Mile 5: 1.01 in 7:52 (7:50)<br>
Mile 6: 1.01 in 7:56 (7:51)<br>
Mile 7: .97 in 7:49 (8:03)<br>
Mile 8 : .99 in 7:48 (7:52)<br>
Mile 9: Missed it<br>
Mile 10: 2.03 in 16:06 (7:57)<br>
Mile 11: .94 7:53 (8:23)<br>
Mile 12: 1.03 in 8:05 (7:51)<br>
Mile 13: 1.01 in 7:47 (7:43)<br>
Finish: .1 in 0:0:39 (6:23)<br>
Total: 13.11 in 1:44:03 (7:56)<br><br>
The age and overall placings have not been posted yet. I will add them later.<br>
Have a great day everyone!

That is almost my Rochester Half Marathon time to the second. I just backloaded the pain at the end and ran negative splits from mile 7 on. Nice work for a day when most people are gaining eight and not even considering exercise.

I missed my PR by 30 seconds for a half mary so that is pretty cool. I didn't think I was going to run that well.<br><br>
My age group result was 36/149<br>
and overall men: 252/884.<br><br>
Not bad.<br><br>
