Half Marathon Results

I ran 2 more half-marathons in the past couple weeks. I ran Greta’s Great Gallop on October 3rd in Central Park and then ran the Staten Island Half Marathon today.

Date Race Miles Time Pace (min/mile)
October 3 Greta’s Gallop 13.1 1:46:42 8:08
October 17 Staten Island 13.1 1:41:56 7:47

I’m pretty happy about these 2 races. The weather was perfect and I was able to avoid hitting the wall. I improved my half-marathon time about 30 minutes since May. I’m just guessing here, but I probably won’t be able to keep this up. The other good news is that this was my ninth NYRR race of the calendar year, so I automatically qualify for next year’s NY Marathon (2005).

You go boy-ee

Take it bird by bird, my man. One race at a time. Don’t look at it as another year’s worth of races. That’s perceiving your goal as a mountain. There is alway only the next race, be it 1 mile or 1/2 marathon. It’s never any more than just a molehill.

And don’t forget to stretch!
