* Decent week of training, was hoping to get over 90 but Saturday was a long work day, couldn't get 'er done.
* Denver Half was about what I was expecting. Part of me thought I might be able to run sub 1:20, but I had no basis for that rationale and my pace going out was for the goal of a 1:20:30.
* I'm AMAZED at how many people continue to go out too fast. On Sunday I saw people that are slower than me in a marathon leading me the first mile or two when I was running the half. I just don't get it, pacing is not that hard, especially when you have a Garmin. At the end of the race I constantly heard people say "I went out too fast," I learned the value of even pacing when I was 19 years old, but apparently some people can't figure it out?
* Right now I'm guessing that I am in 2:46 marathon shape (sea level). Six weeks until Philly Marathon, getting a new PR is possible, but it will be tight.
