Fairfield, CT Half Marathon – 2017

It must be summer, it must be June, which means it’s time for my yearly hometown’s half marathon race report.  To make it short and sweet, training was nothing magical, very low mileage hoovering around 15 – 18 miles per week.  All runs were slow.  I recently bought a new Garmin, the Fenix 5X, and started to play around with running by heart rate, since the watch has a built in optical HR monitor.   This was my 9th consecutive year running this race, 8th time barefoot. I came in with a time of 1:50:29 which I was very pleased with considering how light my training was.  I actually beat last year’s time by 2:24.  How that happened I don’t know.   I got about 4 hours of sleep the night before the race, for some reason I just can’t sleep before a race. The weather was beautiful and bit hot, it was close to 80 degrees at the 8AM start time.   Happy Summer!

#strictpullupsforlife I saw this tour at the New Haven Coliseum in New Haven, CT back in 1989.  The line-up was a bit different, Big Daddy Kane was there instead of Too Short, and NWA never showed up which was a bummer!  Killer show.
