From start to finish, this was just a fun, fun run! The last mile really hurt, but the rest of it felt very solid.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. This was just a fun race ran by a coworker that I got shamed into doing, hehe.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and drank lots of water, gnoshed lots of food. Pizza!!

The picture doesn't even do the Finisher's Medal justice. The coins were included for scale.... the thing is HUGE. It could be a country-western belt buckle!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

HILLS!

Event comments:

Great event, absolutely beautiful course with parts of it on trails going through the Holden Arboretum. Good post-race music and the food was good. Pizza!!

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 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

I am running Boston in April and Ironman Lake Placid is in July. I have been told that it is ambitious to think about doing an IM so close to a marathon due to the recovery time. Any suggestions?

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

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.
