The Recap You’ve All Been Waiting For


Go St Louis Half Marathon!

 

So I decided not to race this but just run comfortably. I set a goal of 1 hour 45 minutes. I actually set it thinking I was going to race and thought it was a pretty high goal and that it would be hard for me to do.

….let’s just say I hit the goal and I didn’t even race it!!!!

results

Here are my splits:

mileage time
mile 1 7:56
mile 2 8:02
mile 3 8:04
mile 4 7:54
mile 5 7:58
mile 6 8:01
mile 7 7:56
mile 8 8:02
mile 9 7:49
mile 10 7:57
mile 11 7:46
mile 12 8:26
mile 13 8:10
.21 1.36

Average pace: 8:00/mi

This course was EXTREMELY hilly. I train on hills everyday but not one’s that last a mile long. The last two miles my body just died on me. It was tired haha and didn’t want to do work anymore.

I wonder what I would’ve ran if I actually raced.

Picture Time:

I will have to post official pictures once they are up, but for now these are the pictures Alex took of me.

I must say, my leg muscles looked pretty good in those first few pictures 🙂 I can’t wait to see what the official pictures look like. Hopefully they took some of me actually running.

there you have it!!

    Oh. My. GOSH! How cute are you!?!?!?!? Seriously…who takes that good of pics running? Impressive. And your time is insane. I’m hoping to break 1:50 on my next one, and you destroyed that w/o trying. Very jealous. 🙂
