I was feeling confident that I would feel good the whole 13.1
Ryan was going to slow down and run with me to try to push me.
And this is how is went…
Mile 1-9:34, Mile 2-9:40, Mile 3-9:58, Mile 4-9:59, Mile 5-10:11
At this point we saw the 2:05 pacer, and Ryan proposed trying to stay with her. I thought for a minute about it, but knew I couldn’t maintain that pace.
Mile 6-10:20, Mile 7-10:42, Mile 8-10:46
That is where I began to fall apart. Ryan tried to distract me by taking some action shots.
I was ecstatic for Sue and Ryan kept reminding me of what she said .Gut it Out.. Mile 10-10:59, Mile 11-11:15, Mile 12-12:06, Mile 13-11:52… Finish time 2:22
I definitely have mastered positive splits.
Running 13.1 is always an accomplishment, so I still managed to celebrate and enjoy the post race party with some beer and champagne.
