Hey! I'm No. 223.
Every time I run a race, I feel the need to blog how I finished. So, I'll do it again.
My wife and I ran a half-marathon through Fargo-Moorhead Saturday. I finished with a time of 1:53:51, giving me a pace of 8:42 a mile. This is almost a full minute behind the pace I ran in March, but keep in mind that I ran an additional eight miles this time (21k rather than 8k -- 13.1 miles rather than 4.9).
And I can take solace in having outrun my wife. She finished the race with a time of 2:05:42. That's a pace of 9:36 a minute.
Another element of this run was that it allowed me to shake off a few old hang-ups, as mentioned in my column.
Our planned next race is this one.
