PR on heavy half marathon (Read 1067 times)

bas


    The half marathon I ran today was windy, included 7 kms on a narrow beach and 7 more on a nasty brick road through the dunes. But I ran a PR! Big grin. You can read the race report here bas

    52° 21' North, 4° 52' East

      Way to go! Wind definitely adds that special degree of difficulty to any race! Nothing like a PR to keep the motivation up. Great job!

        • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

        • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

          Give the guy a break, zz! Big grin I'm sure he can't think straight for all the endorphins buzzing around... Tongue Excellent run, Bas! Congrats! You rock! modified to add: anyone else find endorphins to be a little bit of a mind-fuzzer? Big grin

              Woohoo Bas! Great that you managed it under those conditions too. Smile That's an excellent time considering that you walked a couple of times, i'm impressed. Claire xxx

                As a fellow "over 50" I would be very happy to post that time for my first half marathon. Congratulations on a great time under difficult conditions.

                    Thank you! It was not my first half marathon, only the first one here. My first HM was not long ago though. I ran that in october 2004 in Amsterdam. My time was 2:09:.. so I have managed to imrpove myself since then. I'm happy about that! bas

                      Awesome bas! Congrats on the PR

                      Falling is easy, it's getting back up that becomes the problem ~Staind

                        Congrats, bas! Loved reading your report. That's a great time under less-than-ideal conditions--especially the wind. I do not like the wind at all.
