Hospital Hill Run
62F / 17C
Total Time = 1h 53m 58s
Overall Rank = 1040/
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 96/
Event warmup:

Jogged a little between the parking lot at Union Station and the starting line.
  • 1h 53m 58s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 42s  min/mile

Ran maybe just a bit harder than I should have on the first half. I was feeling good and went out ahead of the 1:55 pace group. They caught me at about mile 8 and by mile 9 I was thinking I was going to get dropped, but got a second wind at about mile 11 and passed them back up. The last half mile is a great finish, nice and downhill I had a great finish.
What would you do differently?:

Get back in better shape, especially losing some weight.
Post race
Warm down:

Had to go to a baseball game, so I pretty much went from the finish line to the car.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I really did as well as I could have expected seeing as I hadn't run more that ~7 miles for a couple of months and really didn't train for a half at all.

Event comments:

Very well run race (though I felt sorry for the poor guy singing the nation anthem before the race, maybe the worst performance ever).
