Columbus HM

I was reading a blog post about finding the positive in every race, and it reminded me of Columbus. I was happy with my race - finally sub-2! - but honestly, I was a little disappointed that it wasn't better. I'm no longer feeling that way. I had to run conservatively, but on pace (9:09 although I knew I would run the course long). Simply put, I didn't know how long I could hold pace.

First 6 miles: 9:02 pace
Second 7 miles: 8:52 pace
Last .3 (I always run long): 7:52 pace

--> Nothing wrong with that. Let's be honest: My only goal was to go under 2 hours, and I did it. 

Actually there is something wrong with that. I should have gone a little slower to get my palindrome to match my bib (13531). 3 seconds!
