Race Report:

This was my first half marathon and I was not really sure what to expect racing at this distance.

The weather was cool (almost cold), overcast and windy. Luckily the course is flat - probably no more than 10 feet in elevation change.

I had fun with this race. I started off slow until the field opened up and then I worked to find my groove.

Here are my mile splits:
1 9:17
2 8:43
3 8:37
4 8:37
5 8:37
6 8:41
7 8:27
8 8:23
9 8:27
10 8:25
11 8:24
12 8:18
13 8:00
13.1 7:41

13.1 miles in 1:52:07 (8:32 pace)

Post race celebrations on St. Patrick’s Day with friends was great – well what I can remember of it.

This is a well organized race and I would recommend it.

I will definitely run in this race again next year!
