        I agree on the fueling; that wasn't enough. I also agree with Dave that you probably were also running too fast for your training mileage even compared to the 1:51 half.

         

        I concur with Dave that your pace likely exceeded your training mileage capacity, especially considering your 1:51 half marathon. Balancing speed and endurance is crucial for optimal performance and injury prevention.

          Mile 13 is around the time the course starts to get harder (more so mile 15).  Also, I ran that day too and by the time I got to mile 13 the day was getting noticeably warmer.  Don't discount any of the previous comments, but take this into account as well.

          5k 23:48.45 (3/22); 4M 31:26 (2/22); 5M 38:55 (11/23); 10k 49:24 (10/22); 
          10M 1:29:33 (2/24); Half 1:48:32 (10/22); Marathon 4:29:58 (11/23)
