  • 00m
  • 13.1 miles
  •  min/mile

This was a break out performance for me. PR'd by over 6 minutes (different course). I was mentally tough and didn't give in. That was my fastest 13.1 but also my fastest 8k and 10k and 10 mile splits as well.
What would you do differently?:

Train more beforehand.
