Well, I haven't raced a half marathon in about 3 years.  I am not in great shape, but I wanted to use this race as a guage to see where I'm at as I get ready for St. George.  My goal was to finish under 1:30:00, so my goal was accomplished. However, it is hard to see where my running is at right now because I compare it to where I was just 2-3 years ago. Injuries, and age to a certain extent, have taken a toll on me over the last year and a half, but hopefully I can put together some solid training as I gear up for the marathon. Go figure, but putting in mileage makes a huge difference.   

All considered, the race today went pretty well.  Splits were: 6:30, 38, 38, 38, 38, 35, 39, 51, 34, 7:01, 6:52, 59, 7:12, 7:28 pace for the last stretch.  I stayed pretty conservative from the beginning and my body held up well until around miles 9-10.  Then my legs got a bit heavy and when it flattened out on the parade route I just didn't have much left. Running down the canyon was great.  I also enjoyed the stretch down South Temple.  I'm sure my legs will be destroyed for a couple days, so I'm looking forward to spending some time swimming and hopefully I'll be good to go by the end of the week.
