Fairfield, CT Half Marathon – 2013

I say it all the time, but I look forward to this race each year, I just love everything about it. It’s local, awesome course, it’s summertime, and the overall vibe of the race is fantastic.  This was my 5th consecutive year running it, and I achieved a personal best with a time of 1:45:56.   My goal was a solid 1:45:00, 56 seconds short but couldn’t be more happy about the performance.

The weather was hot, by 8:30am it was close to 80 degrees. (No complaints here).   I moved up really close in the corral which was the first time I ever was that close to the starting point, and let me you tell what a huge difference.  There was 5000 runners this year, and lining up where I did, I didn’t experience any of that “stop and go”.  I got to dial in to my pace instantly.   Next up, Philly marathon in November.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.
