Half Marathon Re-Cap! – life+running

Half Marathon Re-Cap!

Since it’s been a MONTH since I ran the half marathon I’d been training for since February, I thought I should probably post the results.

First off — I need to re-calibrate Nike+ SUPER hardcore bad.  It was almost a mile off when I finished (so I run faster than the device tells me that I run).

Here’s my results via nike+

half marathon

and here are my official results

Official Results
I finished 23rd in my age group, 73rd in my gender and 321st overall. There were 353 women and 863 participants overall. I’m not sure how many people were in my age division, but if I would have hit 1:45 (the time I was shooting for) I would have been in the top 10.

To compare, here are my results from 2 years ago, the first time I ran the race.

I finished 208th in my gender and 32nd in my age group.

However, if you notice, I SHAVED 20 MINUTES OFF MY TIME. So really, that’s the big news. I kicked ass.
