Half Marathon PR Today

So after a night of almost no sleep, I went out and ran a half in 1:37:34. I was 28th overall and 6th in my age group (It seems like the 40-44 year old guys are a pretty competitive group. I would have gotten a top 3 finish in most other age groups). Still not blazingly fast, but half an hour faster than I ran the same course last year. A co-worker who had signed up last year injured his foot and let me take his bib, so I ran under a different name in 2012.

I felt strong the whole time today, and passed so many people during the last few miles. Only one speedy younger guy came from behind and passed me. I’m feeling good now, after the race, too. Seriously considering running a full next Sunday. I think I’m gonna have to do it…
