sub-4, baby!!!

quickie post since I need to head out to the Flyers’ post-marathon party…but I leave you with this…

5K-27:40 (8:55 pace)
10K-54:52 (8:50 pace)
15K-1:23:08 (8:56 pace)
20K-1:51:51 (9:00 pace)
Half marathon-1:58:02 (9:00 pace)
25K-2:20:54 (9:04 pace)
30K-2:48:50 (9:03 pace)
35K-3:17:38 (9:05 pace)
40K-3:46:28 (9:07 pace)

Finish-3:58:26 (9:06 pace)

ok, not the smartest run race in the world 🙂 , but a 2 minute positive split really isn’t so bad considering the second half is tougher and i took a fall in mile 14…but had a very strong last couple of miles.

full report to hopefully come before I have to go back to work on Wednesday!! And congrats to everyone else who ran today!! And many thanks to the spectators and volunteers 🙂

  16. Are you kidding?? Those are awesome splits. I think you ran a very, very smart race and a two minute positive split in New York is pretty close to ideal. COngratulations…you done good, girl!

  17. Good job! I knew you could do it!Nice to see you right after the finish, in such good spirits, too. Now we just have to get you to Boston!!!Congrats again!

  18. Thank you everyone!!This is gonna be one helluva tough race report to write. I just don’t know how words can sum up the experience…Thomas/Chelle-I guess the only thing “not smart” I did was a few miles too fast in Brooklyn-as shown by my fast 10K split. But it didn’t hurt me at all in the end, so it’s all good 😀

  19. There’s an obvious joke I could make about this photo but I won’t do it… CONGRATS AGAIN!!!(linking to the jpeg so no names are visible)
