I just rocked my final Half Marathon of 2013.
I finished 18th out of 273 Overall.
I finished 18th male. No females beat me! Fancy that!
I finished 5th out of 31 in my Age Group.
The most thrilling part of all, is that this is a very hilly, tough course. I managed (oh yeah), today, to run my fastest Half of the 2013, and on my 9th one this year. I finished in 1:39:00 flat!!!!!!! That is my third fastest Half to date, so I am ecstatic about it. I maintained a pace of 7:30 or under all the way up to a gigantic hill at mile 8.
So, I am just thrilled today with how the race went. I am right on track for two marathons over the next three weeks. I would say that I am as ready as I can be.
Hey, what do you think of the Halloween coffin medal I got at the finish? It’s hinged, and opens to reveal a skeleton. Run in Peace, instead of Rest in Peace. Pretty slick!
