Ran the Val Nolasco Half Marathon today. I ran this race 2 years ago and had a miserable time, which I can attribute to 3 main reasons. 1) It was extremely humid, and there was no wind, 2) I was out of shape, and 3) I weighed about 20 pounds more than I do now. I suffered badly that day, finishing in 2:15. I was extremely dehydrated and it took a couple days to recover.
Today was much different. The weather was perfect.
Here's a graph and a map. My last couple of miles were faster than the first...highly unusual for me, since I seem to start out too fast.
