2009 NYC Half Marathon - 1:30:37 / 6:55


Chip Time: 1:30:37
Gun Time: 1:31:16
Pace: 6:55
5K Split: 21:08
10K Split: 42:31
15K Split: 1:04:17
20K Split: 1:26:02
Rank: 326/10171
Age Grade: 65.3%




From this result, I know I started too fast and ended up paying the consequences at the end. After mile 6, my legs were stuck in the same gear. Post-race there's plenty of woulda's shoulda's coulda's; but what's done is done and have to own up to my performance. Maybe if I held back a bit for the first 4-5 miles, my legs would have enough energy to push it to the next gear. I'm not really sure if the weather was a factor in the race, but compared to '08, I found myself trying to stay as hydrated as possible. Weather's always a moot point so there's really not much to say for that. However, a positive take away from this is out of my 21 or 22 half marathons, this was my fourth fastest. Hopefully this is a good leverage for the next 4 marathons in a few weeks or so. Hence despite falling off the radar in the last few miles, this is the best half marathon out there. I really can't wait for 2010. By the way, it was great seeing the sea of red and cheers from my team as well as the NYFers- Thanks!
