Pre-race routine:

Took a group photo with Team Frontrunner and walked into the gates. Kissed DT goodbye as he found corral A, while I was back in E.
  • 2h 29m 29s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 25s  min/mile

I'm 100% happy with my time as this is my last half marathon. Good way to "retire" from the distance.

DT had been nursing a cold for the week prior to the race so he ran the 10k instead. After he finished he found me at mile 9 and ran with me, leaving me as the course dog legged. He ran with me for several spots and ran the last mile with me until just before the chute. He gave me a smooch as we parted and the crowd collectively "awww"ed. I really needed him as I cracked hard, dropping from my 11min miles to 12 min.

Warm down:

Moo! Moving through the cattle like food stations, which were pretty bare.

Event comments:

Will not do this race again- the finish line and the cattle like herding of people into Columbus Commons was a joke. Too many people in a too small of space. The band was too loud so no one could hear cel phones or what anyone was saying. For your money the Flying Pig is a better race, even with that huge hill :) I'm in for the 10K next year!

My question is am I playing with fire entering the half marathon this close to my primary goal for this season which is the HIM?

I just ran the Boston Marathon under nine minute miles, can I run eight minute miles for my half Ironman training runs? Or should I go slower?

I just started doing tris this summer and I have two under my belt, both sprints. Is it reasonable to build up for a Oly in early ‘09, with a HIM in Oct of ‘09

Steady is our walk. Ignoring the pain that is radiating from my feet, I continue to place one foot in front of the other. Again I wonder, “Why am I doing this?”

Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

This program should be used for an athlete whose goal is to run a marathon in the 1:30-2:30 range and has a good running base in the past 8-12 weeks.

I will assume you have not run consistently more than 6 miles and have never completed a half-marathon. I believe running your first half-marathon is a big task which requires dedication and work.

My training was taking off. I had never felt stronger. I was making bigger strides than I ever had. I was stronger and faster than I had imagined myself ever being.
