Had an awesome day out there. Goal was to run Sub-90 and I paced evenly throughout the race and hit the mark perfectly. I dropped the 1:30 pace group at mile 3 and never looked back.

I moved from about 50th place to 39th in the last 6 miles as I executed my kick which made this race VERY rewarding.
What would you do differently?:

Very even pacing and one of my best executed races ever. At 48, this is my fastest (In terms of VDOT) race I have ever run. Seems like I still have some improvement left before age starts to slow me down.

Event comments:

I last did this race in 2006 and the organization has improved a great deal. Course is very isolated with NO spectator support. (Other than the start and the finish)

Congratulations on a strong run -- finishing place very impressive! Having just run my fastest 1/2M ever on an age-graded basis, understand the joy you're feeling post-race.

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.
