this morning i ran my fifth colchester half marathon - and it's still one of my favorite events! i think the last time i ran it was back in 2012. still the same tough course, great volunteers and awesome post-race food (and rehydration)! it's one of the best value races for you running buck!
as for my time, 1:43:15, 7:53 came in right in the middle (2 faster, 2 slower) - well off my course best of 1:37 and 3 minutes off 1:46, my slowest colchester. i was very pleased with that finish - but maybe could have done 1:40 if not for the 3 or so ice covered dirt miles! i slowed significantly for those - better safe than sorry :D
i also ran with the prospect of doing the boston buildup 25k tomorrow. let's see if that comes to pass in the morning :O
here are the race results from coolrunning.
