So the official results were posted today. And I have a small correction on my time. The official time was 2:46:01, 7 seconds faster than I thought I did. I'll go with the official time, since it was faster! The average pace per mile was about the same.
5K split: 37:34 (12:07 mile pace)
10K split 1:16:11 (12:17 mile pace)
15K split: 1:55:33 (12:25 mile pace)
total: 2:46:01 (12:40 mile pace)
To say the least, I did not negative split and definitely slowed down a good bit in those last 4 miles. But I have to say, my hip flexors were definitely killing me those last 4 miles especially. I don't know if I should have run faster to start with or whether the wheels would have just flown off the bus if I did that.
But all in all for my 1st stand alone 1/2 Marathon, I'm pretty pleased. It would be awesome to be able to run the Women's 1/2 Marathon in November at under a 12:00 mile pace. But we'll just have to see what happens....
Baby steps first, right? Next up St. Anthony's!
