No run today.  Body recovering from lack of sleep.  Also, a break away from vegetarian diet.  We ate at a restaurant that did not have any vegetarian choices.  So I had a burger with bacon and french fries.  I'm now paying for that.

7:30 am race in Somerset KY.  very hilly.  63 degrees and 94% humidity.  At first glance, I was a little disappointed in my results.  I would like to run the Chicago Marathon in 3:00:00 or less.  Therefore a half marathon result 1:25:00+ in not very encouraging.  However, 1:24:xx took first place so maybe this is not a good indicator of my abilities at this time.  

Miles 1-4:  6:17, 7:07, 6:51, 7:58. Lead group went out fast and I ran with them to help with the wind for the first mile.  Once I saw how fast we were at the mile split, I pulled back. Mile 2 I was by myself.  Mile three I was passed by the eventual 3rd, 4th, and 5th place finishers. Mile 4 had a mean hill heading up into downtown.

Miles 5-8:  7:15, 6:45, 6:55, 7:01.  Mile 5 was rolling through the downtown.  Finally a payoff with slight downhill for the next two miles.  I was kind of out there by myself for most of this stretch.

Miles 9-12: 7:09, 7:33, 7:14, 8:01.  I ran aside the 5th place finisher for a couple of miles, but he smoked me on the uphills.  a couple of killer hills, then a long sweeping hill over the bridge for mile 12.

 

Mile 13:  7:19 (0:17 for the last 10th)I pushed as hard as I could.  My calves were feeling it from the hills.

 

All in all a good test.
