I just totally rocked my 13 mile run – 2:04:30! That’s a 9:35 pace, people! I even did negative splits with the second half of the run being about 40 seconds faster than the first half. I did 13.1 in 2:05:24 and finished my 13.25 miles in a total of 2:07:10.
My first mile was the slowest at 10:17 but that had more to do with traffic lights than anything else. I had two miles around 9:10 in the last part of the run and my other slow miles were around 9:46 (with a bit of everything in between). I set garmin on auto lap and just ran comfortably. I had some fast miles early on and was a bit afraid of that coming back to bite me in the end, but surprisingly it didn’t. My mile times fluctuated wildly depending on hills, wind, and traffic lights.
I don’t expect to break the 2 hour point in Delaware in March, but I may be close. Woot!
Good thing we’re planning dinner at a brewpub the night before the race.
I don’t know that I can fill Jess‘ shoes with drunken posting, but I’ll definitely be talking more about beer in the upcoming months. We have a lot of beer related stuff going on, so there will be plenty to talk about. \
