Comments: I timed myself on a mile on the track, as part of a 1 mile virtual race. I don't think I've run a timed mile since I was in school. I did OK, especially considering I ran 4.5 miles to warm up (and then 3.6 to cool down.)
Comments: I was viewing this half marathon as a 13 mile pace run. I went out way, way too fast. My first mile was 8:30! However, I never let my pace drop below 10:00, and my overall pace was OK. Now I just need to run twice that distance in twice that time!
Comments: My first race of the season. I wasn't sure what kind of pace to even shoot for. I ran the first 4K loop with my neighbor, then turned on the after-burners to come home in a "blazing" 43:46. Irony: It was my slowest 8K race ever, but it was also the first time I ever got an age group award: 5th place. I did not ask, and do not want to know, how many men there were in my age group.
