Finish Time: 2hrs 30seconds!
It was my first half-marathon since I started running last year to get
healthier and to control my weight. It was nice course with virtually no
hills (except one or two in the beginning). Great weather too. Every mile
there was a mile marker, plenty of water stations too.
Started really slow - around 10mins for first couple miles. But picked up
the pace later on and was able to keep that pace - around 9 to
9:15mins/mile until the end of the race.
I had very modest expectation of finishing the race anywhere between 2hrs
15mins to 2hrs 30mins. So when I realized that it just took me 2Hrs to
reach the finish line, I was a one happy man. I did much better than my
Well, that's it for me for this year. No other races planned this year.
Maybe I will do one more half-marathon next year before I start dreaming
about a full-marathon!
