Pre-race routine:

Breakfast was bowl of cereal & yogurt plus plenty of water.

Event warmup:

Ran 1/2 mile to warm up & did stretching
  • 2h 10m 37s
  • 13.2 miles
  • 09m 54s  min/mile

I've never run more than 10 miles...I had a 9:30 pace through 7 miles but the leg pain took over. My cardiovascular condition is fine but the legs hurt too much to keep up the faster pace. So, I'm proud of doing a 1/2 marathon even though the time was slow. Conditions were ideal, temps in the mid 60's with gusty winds & sunshine.

Limped back to the car...left foot very sore.

Leg pain & foot issues from past basketball injury.

Event comments:

This is a really nice course through the tree canopy lined streets in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville.
