3M Half Marathon Race Report: Too hot for a PR, but 1:32 is nothing to sneeze at

3M Half Marathon Results

A quick synopsis: I ran the first three miles about 10 seconds slower than my planned pace, then the next four miles a little faster than pace. By Mile 8, the 70-degree temp had taken its toll on my legs and all the fight out of my mind. My legs started getting a little tight, and knowing I still have a marathon to run in three weeks, I took it easy the last three miles.

So, not fast enough to qualify for New York (I needed 1:30. I wound up with 1:32:29), and not even a PR (1:31 and change on this course last year), but it's a time I'll take.

Nice!! Not far from your PR, I'd like to assume you could have gunned for it had you sharpened the beginning and latter miles. But, not your A-race so I certainly understand holding back.
