It was a good day to run - relative to the rest of the week - a half marathon. While it was deceptively humid, the weather was a good deal milder this morning than the heat wave of the prior few days. I missed the Norwalk Half last year because of my little scalding accident. So I was surprised at the finishers medals (which Don introduced last year). I wasn't surprised at - and happily looking forward to - the post-race ice cream :D
As for my race, I was more than pleased with the 1:48:16 finish (8:16 pace). While I would have liked to shoot for a 1:45, that wasn't in the cards. And a 1:50 seemed like a soft target. So I had a sub 1:48 goal for the double loop course. I missed it by 17 seconds...but no worries!
What I am a little worried about is speeding down 5th Avenue tomorrow for the NYRR Mile :O
Here are the race results from the Lightfoot Runners.
The rest of my pictures are up on Facebook.
