Comments:

Decent race, first of the season after a really tough winter. Super hilly, possibly hardest course I have done? Satisfied with race. Was pretty cold.
What would you do differently?:

Hard to determine pace. Thought the first few miles were a little conservative, but who knows. Ran strong the last 2-3 miles, except for that final sloth up the last hill. Could have drunk more water perhaps.
Post race
Warm down:

None. Light stretching.

Event comments:

A great race in a historic location. Race started late, and was probably short.

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 finished the NYC marathon on Sunday and I think I'm going to venture into triathlons. I am doing an Olympic distance and I want to do a 70.3 next year too. Any advice?

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?”

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.
