absolute downpour tonight, got hailed on 4 different times, and was a little nervous as to how close a few of the lightning strikes got. I wanted to get a 3 mile tempo in, so even though the streets were flooded and i was taking sloshing steps up to my knees in places in the street torrents, i still managed a very good workout. 6.5 total with 1 mile warmup and 2.5 cooldown, my 3 or actually after measuring (i had to run right in the middle of the road for most of it because of the flooding), so it was actually about a 5k. here were mile splits:

1- 6:03.2

2- 6:01.2

3- 6:02.5

total-- 18:06, 6:02 avg pace if this was 3 miles, slightly faster if it was a 5k, which it was probably closer to, either way a great workout given the conditions

Race: Equinox Half Marathon (13.1 Miles) 01:29:14, Place overall: 23, Place in age division: 2

Ran the Equinox Half Marathon down Poudre Canyon in Fort Collins, Colorado. Race started at 7000 feet and dropped down to 6000 feet, all pretty much downhill. However, the altitude kicked my Iowa, low altitude butt. Felt really good at the start but by mile 4 I couldn't breathe, that caused me to start cramping in the leg and side because I couldn't get the oxygen to keep pushing. It was a trifecta of pain all stemming from my lack of ability to get enough air. I was at 32:13 through 5 miles and felt decent enough, but fell apart pretty splendidly to finish in 1:29:14. I had no real time goals going in. my goal was to be at least at GMP (6:55 pace) for the whole thing, so in that sense I succeeded. I havent put in any speed work and that was evident, instead i've been logging miles as I train for my 2nd marathon. So while it was not a great race and I was in pain, I feel like it was a good stepping stone and training run. got 2nd in my age group and 23rd out of 700 half racers, so I got some extra little award things, overall a very nicely organized race and the scenery and weather in the mountains was amazing...if only i could have enjoyed it more.
