OH NO - definately not complaining.! Even the little bit of running off tangent could have made that distance off. It was a beautiful day and a great experience and the RD and I are on wonderful terms and I will be volunteering for him when they put this one on next year.

Congrats for finishing but not for complaining! 13.25-13.1 is only 0.15 --- easily within the error you'll get from consumer-grade GPS over that distance, even on roads not to mention a trail! Did the RD even claim the course was certified? I know it can be done but it's extremely expensive and so most RDs for trail race are quite "casual" about distances. That's just part of trailing racing!

On the other hand, I once did a trail HM that *was* certified yet turned out to be 12.1 miles! (The people at the turnaround accidentally used the wrong cert map and set up a half mile short.) Now that was so wrong that the RD was terribly embarrassed and apologetic. That everyone did a PR didn't make up for it because it was officially recorded as a 12.1M race, not a HM :-P

Congratulations!! At least it was a little cooler for you...hopefully that helped!

I'm planning to do the Peapod in Batavia as well, then the FVM, too. Apparently I'm pacing the "back of the pack" finishers!

Great job!!

I'm doing the Peapod Half Madness in Batavia in August and the Fox Valley Marathon in the fall. I was going to do this one but had already signed up for Rockford which is next week.

Hope you aren't too sore tomorrow.

Did it! DONE! Completed my first spring half-marathon! Wasn't my best half-marathon time (by a long shot), but wasn't my worst - and Garmin had the distance at 13.25. Finished right at the time I was shooting for and not as sore as I thought I might be, but tomorrow will tell. Not too bad for only having done 10.25 as my long run so far this year (until today, of course)! Now I have a good benchmark to gauge my improvement over the season before this falls Fox Valley Half and the RNR St. Louis.
