Bostom Week # 11 and Caesar Rodney Half Marathon


Well only 5 weeks until the big race. Had another solid week of training this past week. I did an easy track workout on Friday which was nice and took off Sat because of the race on Sunday.
This was a nice Half Marathon it ran through the streets of downtown Wilmington and some of the other areas around the city. It had some decent climbs but also some nice down hills. I did not really set a goal time. I know that I did want to go under 1:30. I ended up running 1:22:27. That is an avg of 6:18 per mile. This time also allows me to get into the NYC Marathon without going through the lottery so I am leaning towards that as my fall marathon.

Big congrats to my buddy Kevin who was first in his age group and 9th overall. You can check out the results here.

I was 41 overall and 12th in my age group. This was a cool race and nice climb at the finish.

I will update all the totals and documents. Happy Training.

GO NOVA.
