Omaha Marathon
45F / 7C
Total Time = 1h 37m 40s
Overall Rank = 107/2171
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 11/151
Pre-race routine:

Protein zone naked fruit smoothe and a Gu before the race
Event warmup:

light stretching, nothing else
  • 1h 37m 40s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 03m 44s  min/mile

My goal was to hold a 7:30 pace for as long as I could. I started out feeling really good and ended up doing around a 7:15 pace the first several miles. At the 7 mile point before the hills I was averaging 7:20 overall.
Once I hit the hills I slowed down a little, but made very good time on the hills. At the end of the hills I looked at my watch and saw a 7:30 overall pace, so I knew I was home free for the last 4 miles to hit my 7:30 or less because it was a lot of down hill. :)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Event comments:

Great race, that I would recommend to others. I plan to make this a recurring race every year. :)
