I placed first in my AG (50-59) with a slow time of 2:24:18, but I guess the fast folks in my AG didn't show up! I was surprised that they only provided water at the aid stations, no gatorade. I was sadly unprepared (a newbie mistake) and didn't carry anything with me. So by about mile 10 I kind of bonked, and walked quite a bit of the last 3 miles. That's just too far to run on a warm day with no carbs or electrolytes.
Even with what I thought was a slow time, it was still a PR for me, as this was my first half. And winning 1st in my AG was an added bonus.
