Sam Costa Half Marathon Race Report

So I ran a race yesterday. A cool 13.1 miles. 

I wasn’t expecting much, my hip is in pretty bad shape and I had skipped running the last three days of last week. Surprisingly, it ended up going very well. Not only was I able to finish, but I ran pretty quickly, well, for me anyway. I finished all 13.1 miles in 1:57:29, a new PR! Even better, not only was it a PR, but it was significantly faster than my first half marathon last fall.

I still haven’t met my goal time for this spring (1:55:00), but hopefully I will be able to trim off two and a half minutes either in Louisville next month or back in Indy in May. We’ll see. I’m optimistic that I can do it as long as I work hard at it.

Chris also ran and PR’d yesterday. I imagine that he would become pretty quick if he ran a little more often. He did really well considering that this was his third run this year. Since January 1st, he has run 49.3 miles, an average of 16.4 miles per run. Non-conventional, but hey, whatever works.
