Texas Half Marathon

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

TEXAS HALF MARATHON
:34/:30 seconds
Actual: Ran 182:23 minutes
13.1 miles
1416 cal.
Avg. HR: 112 Max HR: 130
Avg. Pace: 13:55
About 10 minutes slower than I expected to be. At the end my right hip felt like I was being pricked with a pin after the run and it was hard to stand because of the pain. It went away within an hour or so.
Here are some pictures of the event. It is quite a pretty place to run.

    You did it! Congrats! I like the pictures, it's nice to be able to run by water. Can I ask what nutrition you use for a run of that length? In the next several weeks I'll be upping my mileage for my own half and don't have a clue. Anyway, glad you got it done and your hip is okay.

    Great way to start 2014! Is ":34/:30 seconds" your run / walk ratio?

    Well done. We got wet, but it wasn't too bad. The bad rains held off until we were done. emoticon

    Well done. There sure were a lot of runners out today! Saw packs of them in the park. One can tell that the Houston Marathon approaches.
