On the Run: Martian Invasion of Races Half Marathon 2011

Today I ran my longest half marathon ever.  You read that correctly - not slowest, longest.  You see, instead of being 13.1 miles, this one was 13.4.  Initially, I was a tad disappointed with my overall time since it was a couple of minutes slower than the same race last year.  However, Running Fit has adjusted the results to reflect the correct distance and it turns out my pace is 6 seconds better this year than last.  Not too shabby, huh?
Despite predictions of snow and ice, the sun was shining and the course was dry.  Overall, it was a pretty decent run, although I started out too fast and began to tire out at mile 10.  I'll have to remember next time to take it easier at the start.  I think I was over-excited after having set a new PR two weeks ago and hoped to do just a little better today.  Even though I didn't set a new PR for time, however, I did set a new one for distance!
