alright Austin Half Marathon 13.24 mi 02:08 09:40 pace

This was my first half marathon. The first time to actually run 13 miles. This course was hard, very hard for me. Miles 3-6 & 10-13 were hills, not like small delicate bumps - NO! These were straight up scare you hills, esp the last ones. It took me almost 9 minutes to get to the start line. I started with the 9 min milers and quickly pulled away & I thought for sure that this was going to go well! Newbie, novice that I am....

The weather was warm, the wind was at high speed, and the hills tormented my every move. I am ashamed of my performance because I didn't succeed at my simplest of goals - NO WALKING! Yes, I walked about 3x during those last 3 miles. Thank goodness for my previous 9 miles, they saved my overall performance.

I ran 13.24 miles in 2hrs & 8 minutes which came to 9:40 avg miles

Mile1 - 8:50, Mile2 - 8:52, Mile3 - 9:07, Mile4 - 9:32, Mile5 - 9:16, Mile6 - 9:26, Mile7 - 8:56, Mile8 - 9:22, Mile9 - 9:47, Mile10 - 10:33, Mile11 - 11:01, Mile 12 - 10:48, Mile13 - 10:35

Sigh, I am disappointed. I am sore, but I would totally, TOTALLY do it again!

    Definitely do the 3M as a prep for next year! Since its all downhill, its a lot more fun. I still think you did great here, though, it is such the tough course!
