Mr. Marathon had a good run with a friend, all over downtown Danville and up and down the River Walk along the river. He ended up finishing in a time of about 1:28! Official times aren't posted just yet, but either way he is thinking he got himself a PR!
|Oh, and we both placed first in our age group!|
I, on the other hand, was extremely close to a PR. I managed to maintain a consistent 10-11 minute per mile pace, and I was feeling good! In order to PR, I had to maintain faster than an 11:02 pace. I really thought I had it, but my watch said 2:25:07 and only 13.04 miles, and my PR is 2:24:43 for a full 13.1. I'm not sure about my official time, but I do know that I was so, so close! But fortunately, I have another chance to PR again next weekend at the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon! I am desperately hoping for a PR to round out my intense training before I really crack down and focus solely on my marathon.
|Great time! But that probably has something to do|
with the nap and the food...
