Last weekend at the Queens Half Marathon hosted by NYC Runs, I achieved one of my goals for 2015. I ran a half marathon in under two hours. My garmin had me finishing in 1:58:33 and the official time was 1:58:31. My previous best was around two hours, seven minutes so I took nearly 10 minutes off my time! Overall my pace was 8:55 / mile. I have to say I'm pretty happy with that! I think it's the last time I'll set a half-marathon PR for a while. The timing for this race was perfect. The course was mostly flat, the weather was perfect, and it was the first race of the year that I really pushed as hard as I could for. I'll push for the next race too (the Brooklyn Half Marathon) but after that I expect the weather to be too hot to push for a PR. That's fine. I have many more half marathons to run this year. Maybe in December I can try for a 1:45:00 half marathon! Anyway, 1:58:33, my best half time ever. It feels good.
