04/15 - Platte Half Marathon + 1.5 w/u
Total 56.6 Miles
* Last year I ran three half marathons, all of them were in the 1:20s. I knew going into the Platte that I was not in 1:20 half shape and thought a 1:22 might be realistic. At about mile 8, I started to slow down quite a bit, tough headwind for most of the race and the lack of doing any runs longer than 15 miles meant I was destroyed, finished in 1:23:59.
* The crazy thing is no one passed me after the first mile of the race, so even though I was slowing, I was still managing to pass people. Odd.
* I'm a long way out from running any meaningful race, thus not too concerned. I'm still in base mode right now, ok shape, but definitely not racing shape.
