Last week I blogged, "I would be amazed and delighted to run this pace for the half marathon, finishing at a total time of 1:59."
And here I am having done just that. I finished a half marathon in 1:59:32 (9:07 pace).
This completely blew me away and I did it with my brother Eddie running with me illegally handing me fuel and words of encouragement. The last three miles I ran negative splits!
8:40, 8:50, 8:40!
My brother Eddie coached me through the whole race by my side and really helped me push a consistent pace all the way to the end. It felt great to finish so much faster than my last race in Sept, which was 2:27!
Just goes to show you how much faster you can get when your train consistently and have great support around you. Now what should I do next?
