Today marked my last official race as “Carrie Sapp.” It was a good one.
1st Place Age Group Women 30-34 (there were 39 total)
5th Overall Female (there were 233 total)
Overall Time: 1:33:59
A new Half-Marathon PR for me.
Here were my Garmin Readings. It measured the distance almost .4 mile long–weird, so it makes my race look even better!
Distance: 13.46 miles (almost 4/10 of a mile longer than a Half-marathon!! odd)
Overall Pace: 6:59 per Mile
These were my manual splits that I took at each mile marker. I did not have the Garmin taking automatic splits.
Mile 1 7:17
Mile 2 7:11
Mie 3 7:13
Mile 4 7:11
Mile 5 7:09
Mile 6 7:14
Mile 7 7:08
Mile 8 7:08
Mile 9 7:05
Mile 10 7:07
Mile 11 7:03
Mile 12 7:11
Mile 13.1 7:55
I owe it to my training partner Thon who laid out our strategy and made me stick with it even when I was getting very impatient those first few miles. He was right. It was hard to watch 9-10 women take the lead, but it felt good getting to “chick” most of them through the race.
I also want to congratule my husband-to-be Shawn for setting a MAJOR PR…I’m talking 11 minutes!!! He came in right around 1:47–Awesome.
More thoughts to come. Must eat and have a mimosa.
It’s officially WEDDING WEEK!!!
