Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

To be honest, I was going to be happy with an average ten minute pace today (2:11:00 total), and I would have been thrilled to get a 9:45 average (2:07:43.50).

Conditions at the start were ideal (for me, anyway) - partly cloudy, 47*. The half-marathon at QC is pretty flat, save for the bridges crossing the Rock and Mississippi Rivers - four in all. I started out fast like I ususally do, and should not do, getting about 9:15. Little did I know. Here's the splits (remember, the best I was hoping was a 9:45 average):

1 - 9:14.60
2 - 8:48.37
3 - 8:49.37
4 - 8:49.00
5 - 8:39.76
6 - 8:50.45
7 - 8:36.46
8 - 8:49.10
9 - 8:08.39
10 - 8:41.00
11 - 8:35.49
12 - 8:26.29
13.1 - 9:05.75

Total - 1:53.34.53

This has not yet fully settled in - my mind was elsewhere in the race.By the week's end, I'll enjoy it fully.
